Vienna: Weingut Wieninger

January 30, 2010 Travel 0

Imagine you wake up in the morning and you head to your train station to catch your local train. A couple of stops later you get off at Weingut Wieninger. Wow, that’s something. Vienna is the only capital with vineyards within its city limits.

Heuriger is a long tradition that started in 1784 when the Austrian emperor Joseph II issued a decree that allowed local residents to open a “wine bar” to sell their self-made “Heuriger” – the current year’s wine.
