In 2012 they opened a glass manufactory where visitors get insights in the philosophy, production, breeding of the pigs and where all products can be tasted. Furthermore, Vulcano has adapted to the needs of visitors and implemented a small restaurant where visitors can try regional small plates throughout the day and a shop with local products form the whole region of Styria.
