The winery is located in the municipality of Gamlitz-Kranachberg in the wine-growing region of Southern Styria (Austria). The history of the Sabathi-Hof dates back to 1860, but the farm was run as a mixed farming operation for more than 100 years. After training at the Silberberg viticultural college, Hannes Sabathi joined the farm, which has been run by him and his wife Karin since 2005.
Hannes Sabathi's passion for wines full of character and terroir was awakened by travels in Burgundy. According to the philosophy of the house, the wines should reflect "an ideal synthesis of terroir (soil character), vintage and variety typicity". Hannes Sabathi is also known as "The Sabathi with the roots". This refers on the one hand to the visual appearance of the labels, but also to the great importance he attaches to the soil (quote "great soil, great wine"). The vineyards cover 30 hectares of vines in the Jägerberg, Kranachberg and Loren am Pössnitzberg areas. The white wine varieties Sauvignon Blanc, Morillon, Weißburgunder(Pinot Blanc), Grauburgunder(Pinot Gris), Welschriesling and Gelber Muskateller are cultivated to 95%; the rest is Blauer Zweigelt. Environmentally conscious cultivation is practised.
