A night at the 'Heurigen'

(17.06.10) Did you know that vineyards sorround Vienna in the West, North and South? So, what else should we offer our conferees for a banquet than an evening at a traditional wine tavern?

Wine is being grown around and in Vienna since 500 b.c. What was started by the Celts an Illyrians was perfected by the romans. Since today traditional wine taverns (called 'Heuriger') offer neverending streams of liquid sunshine and hearty buffets. (More about Vienna and the wine)

Viennese wine taverns

in Viennese wine taverns people used to bring their own food and only buy the wine which is served in 1/4 l glasses. Nowadays all the Heurigen offer a hearty buffet.

The wine's quality has rosen in the last years. Whereas often mass production was favored some decades ago, nowadays quality is the main issue. Therefore wine taverns are still popuar for young and old as well.he wine taverns nothing has changed. They are still places to fraternise and to lock out everyday life.

Banquet

The banquet will be held at the Heurigen Fuhrgassl-Huber in Vienna / Salmannsdorf. A family led business in which many Viennese celebrate marriages or birthdays.

"Ausg'steckt''

The term 'Heuriger' is used for the wine taverns as well as for this year's wine. When the young wine is ready in late fall, it becomes the 'Heurige' and last year's wine turns to the 'Altwein'.

Well, now you know a little about the Wiener Heurigen. But important information is still missing: How to order wine.

Usually you order "A Vierterl" (diminutive of a quarter - Viennese tend to use diminutives a lot) and add "weiß" or "rot" respectively ("rot" if you want a quarter of red, "weiß" if you like to have a quarter of white wine). But in the summer when it is really hot people tend to drink "A G'spritzter" ('Ein Gespritzter' in german, which is an eight of (usually white) wine mixed with an eight of sparkling water).(More about Vienna and the wine)
