The wines keep constant high level and are usually the best in their respective category in the area. Weaknesses, there is little, but can occur in difficult vintages. However, this must be balanced in good years with particularly compelling assortments so that an operation can hold the status. In most cases you can blindly buy.

The training center for fruit and wine growing and the Silberberg winery is located in Kogelberg near Leibnitz in the südsteiermark (Austria). The name comes from the former owner Count Heinrich von Silberberg. Through marriage in the family of Messrs. Von Leibnitz, Count Heinrich von Silberberg came to the site of today's wine-growing school in 1331.

In 1895, the Styrian state parliament bought the property for 19,000 guilders in order to develop measures and further training in order to build a regional vine plant and a training facility for the winegrowers in the region.

In the 1st Republic (1918-1938), businesses in economic distress were absorbed by the province of Styria and continued to be used as state goods. Silberberg is divided into the areas of fruit and wine growing school and state winery. Silberberg is also one of the test centers for the State test number probelms. In 1985 the five Styrian estates Silberberg, Kitzeck, Schlossberg, Remschnigg and Glanz were combined to form the "Styrian state winery Silberberg". A new white wine cellar was also built this year. Responsible for the operation are oenologist Ing. Reinhold Holler, cellar master Klaus Fischer and wine master Johann Schwarz.
