Stammersdorf Heurigen: Cold food and wine
Heurigen or wine taverns are places where you can drink and buy wine. You can recognize them by green bunch of grapes sign. They are of different sizes, although most that I have visited were quite large. They are excellent places for larger companies. Almost every house near Stammersdorfer Strasse is Heurigen. It is also interesting to explore small road to the right after the end of Stammersdorfer Strasse.
Once a year there are wine days in Stammersdorf and main road is changed in pedestrian zone. There are thousands of people there and a biiig party with all kinds of music, from popular music to jazz.
During late summer and autumn check for most (grape juice, no alcohol) or sturm (a little older grape juice that is slowly turning into wine, contains some alcohol).
Favorite Dish: Heurigen are not great place for vegetarians, but you can always find something, like apple strudel or cheese with various breads. Meet eaters seem to like cold meats.
Anyhow, good places for wine and talk.

Zum Heurigen: Careful With Drinking Too Much Wine!
Overall a nice atmosphere, though I enjoyed the laid-back of the Augustiner (Salzburg) much better. In any event, dining outside with music is pretty cool (not all places have music). I would have liked a better selection of food. I stopped in several places and it seemd the choices were pretty slim. I did find a couple which had much to choose from and settled down for a good meal. The wine in the two places I attended was served in mason-like jars, and so it's deceptive in how much is being served.
....heriuger: Eat like the locals at the Heuriger
A meal at any of the many Viennese heuriger is a must; I particularly enjoyed eating there, tasting the local wine and sampling local delicacies.
You are seated on wooden chairs and wooden tables served by ladies in typical Viennese dresses. You may see men in lederhosen outfits!!!
Heuriger is a tradition that goes back to the Romans period.
"Heuriger" means this year's and here it is connected to wine-harvest of the year.
heuer = this year, in the Bavarian dialects.
Not all heuriger keeps open all the time, some open only for a couple of weeks a year, others fixed their dates say every
second month, and others specialize on weekends, e.g. Friday to Sunday.
