"If you have never tasted Austrian wines, now's the time to try them on this "tour of tastes". This unique tour will give the traveler a chance to taste wines from several wine regions of Austria such as the Danube River Valley (Wachau) and the Kamp River Valley; the hills surrounding Vienna in the South; Vienna itself (the only capital in Europe that has vineyards within its city limits and wonderful wines!!) and the Burgenland (most Eastern province). You will be tasting whites and reds – Insider Tip: Grüner Veltliner, only grown in the Eastern Austrian wine regions; and Zweigelt, a unique red wine coming from the Burgenland.
As true foodies we at Herzerl Tours are convinced that the regional cuisines add a lot to the taste and the "nose" of the different wines.
