Wines that express the special. From the best Vineyards of Südsteiermark. To inspire people, we passionately follow our vision of outstanding wines. Wines the way we love them. Since 1757.

Stefan and Bernhard Schauer create wines that carry the character of southern Styria and embody the soils of the Sausal, which are characterised by Palaeozoic slate. Wines that express depth of flavour and have their finger on the pulse of the times.

They create wines that do not show off with ostentatious opulence, but convey drinking pleasure with their vibrant interplay of acidity and aromas and seduce with their filigree, floating lightness, subtle elegance and depth. Wines that also embody longevity and carry potential for the future.

Weingut Schauer - Sauvignon Blanc Kitzeck Sausal
Herkunft Icon


This wine comes from our preferred vineyards within the traditional wine-growing village of Kitzeck im Sausal. With its high altitude and unique slate soils, the village of "Kitzeck-Sausal" offers great conditions for growing wine. It can be proven that Kitzeck-Sausal was already an important wine-growing village of the monarchy in 1763. Only selected grape varieties that have been indigenous here for decades are vinified by us into local wines.

Ausbau Icon


Fermented spontaneously in used large wooden barrels for 9 months.

Culinary delights,

down-to-earth but high-quality

The Schauer wine tavern in Kitzeck is one of the most popular in southern Styria. A hotspot for fans of authentic regional cuisine, high-quality food and characterful wines. A place for socialising, enjoyment and hours of light-heartedness.

From the Buschenschank to the
Wine lists of this world.

Karl and Elisabeth Schauer laid the foundation for a Südsteiermark success story and made the Schauer winery with its Buschenschank one of the most popular hotspots in southern Styria. Their sons Stefan and Bernhard run the business today. What unites the two brothers is their passion for wine. What they complement each other in are their respective strengths, which they combine and gear to the highest international standards.

With wines that are marked by their origins and a clear signature, Stefan and Bernhard Schauer have succeeded in receiving prestigious ratings and awards for their wines year after year. Today, wines from the Schauer winery can be found in the most renowned wine shops and on the wine lists of top restaurants around the globe.

Origin defines the identity and essence of our wines. It is the Paleozoic slate formations of the Sausal that, in combination with the exceptional altitude, the steepness of the terrain and the cool nightly winds, give the wines, above all Sauvignon Blanc and Riesling, this very special character, their unique salty-mineral note.
