Vienna, Austria

Wine Tasting Tour in Grinzing

On Friday October 6 we’ll take a hike through Grinzing and stop at Jutta Ambrositsch’s outstanding Buschenschank in Residence to taste a few of her wonderful wines and enjoy the kind of scintillating conversation that comes from a pleasant evening.

The tour starts at the Cobenzl bus stop at 17:30. Take the 38A bus from Heiligenstadt (U4) or from the end station of Tram 37 to Cobenzl. We’ll be waiting near the bus shelter.

We’ll head across the street and admire the view over Vienna. Then down the hill through the vineyards and talk a little about Vienna wine and wine production while looking over fields planted with grapes. Once we reach the edge of Grinzing we’ll continue on to see historic buildings and the neighborhood’s lively centre. A short distance further and we’ll head uphill to the Buschenschank for our well-earned reward.

Jutta Ambrositsch is one of Austria’s finest winemakers creating unique and very tasty wine including many made with very old and traditional grape varieties but tasting fresh and exciting. Her wine is featured in many American fine wine shops and restaurants.

We will taste three typical wines and learn a little about where the grapes come from, how they were vinified, and tasting notes, along with a little history about the wine variety. We’ll also have bread and a couple of traditional Austrian spreads (homemade) to help the wine along. This tasting is included in your ticket donation. Afterwards you’ll be free (and encouraged!) to order on your own more wine and some of the wonderful homemade food offered by Jutta. It is truly a gourmet Heurigen.


Please reserve in advance and remember that the group is strictly limited to 25 persons, so register soon if you are interested. 

Minimum Donation: 37 Euros - this includes the 3 wines and snacks listed above, as well as a donation to Democrats Abroad.
