On 14 and 15 October the vintners of the Sausal region once again invite you to the vintage presentation and a tasting of exquisite wines in the foyer of the Kulturzentrum.

The Sausal region: A 360 million time laps captured in wine

No stone remains unturned here. More than any other Styrian wine growing region the Sausal is very much characterised by multi-layered subsoils. The steep slopes with up to 90 percent gradient have emerged from Paleozoic phyletic slates. While in the course of millennia the southern part of present-day Styria was submerged in primordial oceans, the Sausal region stands out as a compact, island-like elevation. Coral reefs and marine animals, which covered the rest of Southern Styria with their calcareous deposits, were not present in the Sausal. Today the roots of the vines penetrate deep into the ground in search for nutrients and absorb mineral trace elements. Even if other wine growing regions produce wines which whose aroma is shaped by minerals, the particular essence of argillaceous shale, muscovite-bearing quartzite, green schist, red and blueish-black schist, or of scattered alkali feldspar deposits gives the wine from the Sausal region its particularly mineral timbre. The mineral flavour of individual wines from the Sausal may be rather strong, but the splendid vines clearly rank among the superbin the region. They impress with firm complexity, fruity richness, and a brilliant, cool mineral taste. Regardless of their respective vintage, terroir-marked wines from the Sausal bear witness to the location of the respective vineyard.

We are delighted that this year we were able to persuade Pino Ninfa, one of the most famous European jazz photographers, to present his works in the annual exhibition accompanying the festival.

After having worked as theatre photographer and photo journalist, Nifa found his true passion and “actual purpose of my work” in his interest in music and social projects.

This led the master photographer from Catania to document missions to protect the environment in African forests or the Amazon as well as human misery or the suppression of women in Haiti, Nepal, and India. He has also developed many photo series on jazz festivals and multi-media projects with numerous well-known musicians. His atmospherically intense black and white photographs have earned him a high reputation among prominent musicians who only rarely agree to being portrayed by selected photographers.

Many prestigious jazz festivals have invited him as an official photographer and many prominent companies from Parsehe to Amani were as impressed by his work as various NGO organizations. In addition, Ninfa is a much sought-after host of workshops and seminars around the world. Amongst his numerous exhibitions the 2013 jazz retrospective at the illustrious Palazzo Ducale in Genoa attracted particular attention.
His most famous books include Jazz Gigs (2013), Round about Township (2012), Attraverso L’Etiopia (2007), or Nero Tango (2007).
