By far the largest of the three specific wine-growing regions in the Austrian province or generic wine-growing region of Styria in terms of area. The history of viticulture dates back to the fourth century BC. In the monarchy towards the end of the 19th century, there were still 35,000 hectares of vineyards in what was then known as Lower Styria - roughly 15 times as many as today. At that time, however, areas now located in Slovenia were included. The Habsburg Archduke Johann (1782-1859) set the course for Styrian quality viticulture here by founding an experimental vineyard near Marburg (Maribor). The Pinot Blanc from the Jerusalem vineyard, now located in Slovenia, was one of the most sought-after white wines in Europe at the time and was served at many stately courts.
