The winery is located in the municipality of Gamlitz-Kranachberg in the wine-growing region of southern Styria (Austria). The history of the Sabathi farm dates back to 1860, but the business was run as a mixed farm for more than 100 years. After training at the viticultural college Silberberg, Hannes Sabathi joined the farm, which has been run by him and his wife Karin since 2005.

Sabathi Hannes - Weingut und Rebflächen am Kranachberg

Hannes Sabathi's passion for wines full of character and terroir was awakened by his travels in Burgundy. According to the philosophy of the house, the wines should reflect "an ideal synthesis of terroir (soil character), vintage and varietal typicity". Hannes Sabathi is also referred to as "The Sabathi with the roots". On the one hand, this refers to the visual appearance of the labels, but also to the great importance he attaches to the soil ("Geiler Boden, geiler Wein"). The vineyards cover 30 hectares of vines in the Jägerberg, Kranachberg and Loren vineyards on the Pössnitzberg. The white wine varieties Sauvignon Blanc, Morillon, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris, Welschriesling and Gelber Muskateller are cultivated to 95%; the rest is Blauer Zweigelt. Environmentally conscious cultivation is practised.
