The taverns (heurigen) typically sell a winemaker’s own wine, as well as simple dishes that are heavy on the meat and potatoes. If there’s no time to make the thirty-minute trip from the city center out to the wine district, there are lots of wine bars within the city center. Be sure to try a glass of gemischter satz, a traditional Viennese blend which has been making a comeback.
Here are a few of my favorite wineries:
Wein & Co is a chain of lively wine bars/wine shops, which stock wine from around the world and serves light tapas-style snacks. The flagship loction is across from the Naschmarkt.
Kulinarium 7 is a newish place which attracts a stylish crowd. Though the wine list offers choices from throughout the country (and beyond), one of its best features is the wine on offer from a select group of small Viennese winemakers.
Vinissimo was one of the city’s first wine bars to appear. The place specializes in Italian wines, but showcases Viennese wines in the Spring when the first wines are released.
