Wines Weingut Erich & Walter Polz have long been valued far beyond Austria. Erich and Walter Pauls began managing the winery of their parents Johanna and Reinhold Pauls in the late 1980s. Later, Christoph Pauls, son of Erich Pauls, took over as chief winemaker in the summer of 2011. Thus, the Erich & Walter Polz winery is still a purely family-owned company.
Weingut Polz is located in one of the best places in southern Styria. The geological nature of the soil, hours of sunlight and well-distributed rainfall are ideal conditions for viticulture. But the quality of wine is not only in the good will of nature.
