Strass im StrassertaleStrass figures among the most prestigious wine-growing villages of the country. Its greatest wealth are surely the vineyards along the Strassertal valley most of which are oriented towards the south and are interspersed with basins among the hills facing southeast or southwest. The eastern part of the village boasts gentle hills also facing south and are covered with vines. Strass' best vineyards are Gaisberg and Wechselberg, which – due to their primary rock soil - account for very mineral wines with a great ageing potential. Hasel and Stangl are two further vineyards of great importance followed by single vineyards like Brunngasse or Höllentor.
