Kloch

Wine-growing community in the Bad-Radkersburg district in the Austrian wine-growing region Vulkanland Steiermark, which is known as the "Pearl of the Southeast Styrian Wine Country". A document has documented a vine growing in Klöch since 1444. It says that Ritter Perenhart von Klech was heavily in debt to a creditor from Radkersburg and had therefore pledged his vineyards. The knight died without paying his debts and a Radkersburg judge certified the attachment of the vineyards to "Klechperg and Hohenwarth". In 1965, the municipalities of Klöch, Deutsch-Haseldorf, Gruisla, Pölten and Klöchberg (Hürtherberg and Röhrl) were merged into the larger municipality of Klöch, which then received market rights in 1989.

The large Klöchberg site comprises 160 hectares of vineyards with the Hochwarth, Klinzel, Ölberg and Seindl sites. The sunny steep slopes on volcanic rock with the prevailing Pannonian climate are predestined for the Traminer. For the maintenance of a single-varietal wine from the two varieties Gewurztraminer and Traminer In 1987 the trademark "Klöcher Traminer - The World's Best" was created with the slogan "The wine with the scent of the rose". The logo shows a wine glass with a red rose floating in it. Old wine-growing and winery equipment is exhibited in the Klöcher Wine Museum, including a tree press from 1812. Well-known producers in the community Archduke Johann Weine. Fruhwirth Fritz. Gießauf-Nell. Neumeister and Winkler Hermaden,
