Gornja Radgona has a well-kept farming landscape. Grapevines grow along beautiful hillsides and ridges of this rolling terrain and provide the wine growing districts around Gornja Radgona with beautiful vistas and scenery. Gornja Radgona is famous around many parts of the world because of its wine. It is especially famous for its sparkling wine, "Zlata radgonska penina".
During the past few years, the town has developed an international exhibition center and attracted many famous companies, which has led to a substantial economic upturn.
On the castle hill, visible from a great distance, is the Gornja Radgona Castle which gives visitors a wonderful panorama of the region. The area can be investigated on foot or by bicycle with an occasional stop or rest at one of the numerous farms or refreshing wine taverns.
