We will pick up our guests at selected hotel in Downtown Vienna with our air conditioned minibus. During the 30 minute ride to the Weinviertel Wine Region we briefly tell about the history of Austria and the development of the wine culture in the area. In the Weinviertel we visit 3 small, family owned winery, where we will meet with the owners or their familes and they will make a small presentation about their wines. Since these wineries are usually not available all the time, because they have to do all the works in vineyard as well in the cellar, we have established partnership with 9 wineries in the area and pick 3 for every tour. We are going to taste mostly local white wines, like Grüner Veltliner and Yellow Muscat, along with Austria's favourite red wine, the Zweigelt. At each place we taste 4 glasses of wine, so we prepare with some snacks at each place and at the last winery we complete the experience with dinner. If the conditions allow we also will have the opportunity to see the wine cellar or the production facility. After the tour we take the guests back to Vienna where we picked them up.
After working for more than 20 years for big international companies as a marketing person I decided to do something totally different. On a countryside trip a few years ago I met some winemakers in the Weinviertel area and I fell in love with the region and the people here. Even many Vienna residents don't know that we have a beautiful wine region with more than 300 years of wine making tradition, virtually beginning by the city border. Old cave wine cellars, family history and quality wines - all just 20 minutes away from Vienna. With my friends I would like to invite guests visiting Vienna to a genuine countryside venture to meet with the local winemakers, taste the local wines and make new friends in Austria.

Our small groups travel with our air conditioned minibus.
During every tour we are going to visit 3 small, family owned wineries in the Weinviertel Wine region. As these wineries are not always open, we have a partnership with 9 families in the area and we pick 3 different place for each tour. The wineries are located in the small villages of Leobendorf, Stetten, Klein-Engersdorf and Hagenbrunn, all sorrounded by the wine hills and the vineyards.
