And wine is also grown in Southern Carinthia – including in the Lake Klopeiner See – Southern Carinthia region. As nowhere else gets as many hours of sunshine as here, together with the Mediterranean climate the conditions are ideal for wine growing.
“Rötel” wine from Sittersdorf is already on everyone’s lips. As long ago as 1526, this wine was delivered even to the Spanish royal court as a stomach remedy.
The coat of arms of the community of Sittersdorf is the only one in Carinthia to display a wine grape as a reference to its long wine tradition. The products (Zweigelt, Chardonnay, Solaris, Cabernet Cortis, Roesler) can be sampled not only at the annual wine festival (held every September), but also directly from the wine growers in Sittersdorf.
