vineyard BULLMANN

Situated in one of the most beautiful spots on the Southern Styrian Wine Route lies the traditional vineyard Weingut Bullmann.

Since 1877 the vineyard has been in the family, from 1933 managed by Emma Bullmann, the aunt of the present owner Dr. Gerald Brandstätter. Emma Bullmann was so involved with the development of the Southern Styrian Wine Route (Südsteirische Weinstraße) that she was given the honorary title of "Mother of the Wine Route".

The boundaries of the vineyard run for a large part along the border with Slovenia. The estate comprises seven hectares of vineyards, one hectare of orchard and nine hectares of adjacent woods. 70% of the vines grow on south-facing slopes with inclines of up to 60%, which make cultivation arduous.

The soil conditions, loamy sand, shell limestone and marine sediment are ideal for the cultivation of our wines varieties which include Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Blanc (Weissburgunder), Chardonnay (Morillon), Pinot Gris (Ruländer), Welschriesling, Rheinriesling, Muscat, Sämling, Traminer, Zweigelt and Blaufränkisch.

From Weingut Bullmann one has far reaching views into the Slovenian countryside, which makes it one of the most beautiful locations on the Southern Styrian Wine Route.

Typical for the region are the rolling hills crowned with slender poplars, where vines grown on the southern slopes and northern slopes have mixed forests including magnificent chestnut and beech trees. In summer the woods are a deep rich green and in fall, the foliage turns into a stunning array of autumn colours.

The diversity of the soil and the continental climate with hot summers and mild autumns contribute to the exceptional characters of our wines, remarkable for their rich and rounded Styrian fruitiness and mild aroma.
