Wine Tasting and Vineyards, Vienna
Grinzig is maybe the most famous village to enjoy the local wine at a Heurige, but at the same time the least genuine. Still, it's a beautiful village with friendly restaurants.
Be sure to check the opening hours of the wine restaurants before going there.
Go out to grinzing, a marvellous litle village NW of Vienna (trams go there from the town). Have a walk in the village, then go out to have a short walk between vineyards, and feel the peace. You might walk up even to Kahlenberg and see all Vienna in front of you. Then, after returning to Grinzing, you will surely enjoy one quarter-liter mug of wine (or two) in one of the taverns (Heurigen) of the village.
Austria is famous for its Heurige. They are local vineyards located in Austria's wine region that sell wine that is less than a year old - or translated, this year's wine. There are around 200 Heurige but the best are north and west of Vienna. The most popular are Grinzing and Heiligenstadt. Most now serve a buffet lunch with the wine. A true Austrian experience. They will serve Heuriger until November 11.
Cobenzl can be reached from Grinzing on bus 38A. There is a palace here with a Princess Diana statue. Cobenzl is surrounded by vineyards and has good views over Vienna.
