Lipizzaner - Dam and colt

In 1920 after the First World War in Austria the remaining prized herds of Lipizzaner horses were transferred to the imperial stud farm in Piber, near Köflach.

The breeding of Lipizzaner builds on previous practice of the former imperial stud farm Lipica (toady the village of Lipica is in Slovenia, close to the border with Italy) and still follows the old methods of breeding: breeding the best Lipizzaner stallions that will go for training at the Spanish Riding School in Vienna. They entertain more than 150,000 visitors from around the world every year.

Lipizzaner-grazing


The Lipizzaner breed is the oldest pure-bred race in the world. It used to be called Karster. This breed got its name from the stud farm Lipica, the original breeding ground in the former Habsburg monarchy.

Most Lipizzaner horses are grey and are dark in colour as foals. When they are 6-10 years old they turn white.

A collection of Schilcher wines

A collection of Schilcher wines

This is the traditional area for growing Schilcher,

“Schilcher" is a special type of rosé wine which is made from Blauer Wildbacher. Only in Styria can the wine be called Schilcher.

The Blauer Wildbacher vine is the oldest Austrian type of vine which apparently originates from Celtic times. Schilcher can be traced back as far as the 16th century. It is almost exclusively grown in Western Styria at elevations of up to 600m above sea level.

The wine is onion to ruby coloured and has a marked, strong sharpness. It has a very fresh taste.

This area also is also home to some of the most beautiful wine hiking trails.
