It all started at ProWein 2000 - Schnapps idea is what you would normally call it. Or would it be better to call it a wine idea? Anyway, it was there that the decision was made to visit southern Styria for a week in the summer with a few similarly crazy wine friends.
Thanks to the expert preparation of the tour by the Austria and Southern Styria specialist Knalli (Helmuth O. Knall) and the local winemaker Arnold Melcher, the programme consisted of pretty much the best that Southern Styria has to offer.
Three wineries each day, each with a detailed guided tour and tasting, and the whole culinary variety from Brettljause to various Buschenschänken to award-winning fine cuisine was represented in the programme.
