Full description

Since time immemorial, around 700 hectares of wine have been cultivated within Vienna's urban area. The roots of viticulture here go as far back as the Romans, who populated the city two thousand years ago. 

But what exactly is left of the former empire in Vienna today and how is that related to Viennese wine? Get to the bottom of these questions in the truest sense of the word with a guided wine tasting in the city's deepest and non-public wine cellar.  A professional wine expert will lead you into the cellar to taste three different wines. The wines range from classic Viennese wines to other Austrian wines, which will, of course, be paired with a small snack from the in-house, family-owned delicatessen.

    Cornelius gave an excellent wine tasting. He was able to combine the history of Vienna with the development of the wine industry. He designed our tasting, based on our preferences. We have lived in Vienna for many years, and he was able to expand our knowledge of Austrian wine. The visit to the historic cellar was self guided.

    Our tour of the historic wine cellar was very intimate. We were only the two of you and the guide :) We were shown around the basement. We learned about the types of wine produced in Vienna and tried three wines. All the wines were delicious, one we even decided to buy. We left with good humor to explore the city :)
