Gamlitz Things to Do: 4 reviews and 10 photos
The Südsteirische Weinstrasse (Sothern Styrian Wine Route) is the most popular one of all the wine roads in Styria. Its popularity is more because of the picturesque landscape than because of the wines (I found better wines in other areas of Styria but most of them sold here are not bad either).
The road runs along and over the tops of the wine hills along the frontier between Austria and Slovenia and the road itself is originating and ending in Austria but sometimes it is the frontier itself and even runs a few short bits through Slovenian territory so you should not be surprised that you may meet both Austrian and Slovenian police cars. "Schengen" is now fully valid for Slovenia as well so you may freely cross the frontier and there are no more checkpoints. But you should nevertheless always carry a passport or identity card.
