The Vasi-Hegyhát (Ridge of the county of Vas) lays at the West-Dunántúl, at the south part of the county of Vas, between the Őrség and Kemenesalja. At the north the valley plain of the River Raba and at the south the water-shed of the Zala River borders it. The still existing Farkas-erdő (Wolf forest) preserves the memory of the cragged terrain of the once closed forest area known from the Middle Ages. The wildlife of the land preserved its richness and variety despite the thousand year long human intervention.
The name Vasi-Hegyhát is though primarily is an urban geographic definition, it can be interpreted as an ethnographic unit in several aspects. The memorials of folk architecture and viticulture are notable. The folk traditions and memories of the vernacular speech are related to the near-by Őrség, Göcsej, Hetés, and Muravidék regions.
19 of the 23 settlements belonging to the Vasi-Hegyhát have vine hills, although the infrastructure on these areas are different (for example at Petőmihályfa and at Kám electrical network is settled), and their size are also differing. At the area of the 23 settlements of Vasi-Hegyhát there is a 1000 hectare neglected vine hill land altogether. On these lands the traditional garden-plot vine hill agriculture can be found although in mosaics. With the renewed cultivation of these lands complex, united areas will be formed, which will be again suitable for agricultural profit making, and there would be more demand on them due to the development on touristic attractions, as a complement. The touristic offers are widening on these areas.
