Vienna is for wine lovers today more interesting than ever before
Vienna counts among the few metropolises in which wine is not only drunk, but also grown. The Viennese vintners are at home only a few kilometres from the city centre, in the hilly and sunny locations of the Vienna Woods. The unique aspect is that there are more than 320 wine estates in the city area of Vienna and they produce about two million litres of first-class wine annually. While only the Viennese new wine was long well-known, unblended white wines, and more recently red wines, are now creating a furore. Grüner Veltliner, Rheinriesling, Chardonnay and Weißburgunder are cultivated here, among the red wines it is above all the Blaue Zweigelt that thrives in these locations. Word has got around among wine connoisseurs throughout Europe about the vintners’ return to quality and the specialised press is full of enthusiasm.
The city ensures that the “new wine” is drunk and spoken of everywhere, numerous events focus on Viennese wine, and the interest of wine lovers is unbroken. A comprehensive selection of Viennese wines is available to you at the Hotel Rathaus Wein & Design, all of which you can taste at the wine bar and naturally also take home. We will be happy to organise a excursion days to visit the Vienna vintners as well as a visit to the “Heurigen”, the taverns selling new wine.
Recording to our wines we serve between 4 pm and 10:30 pm small homemade dishes in our winelounge, on our courtyardgarden, and on our terrace with your private sunchair.
