A Springtime Journey to Austrian Wine

The picnic basket filled with scrumptious Schmankerl delicacies is ready. The bicycles are geared up for the first tour of the season, and the joy of a warm spring day in an Austrian vineyard can barely be contained! Austria’s wine growing regions from Vienna to Steiermark and from Donauland to Südburgenland offer endlessly delightful adventures and experiences. All travel tips and advice are available on the “Wine Travels in Austria” platform from the Austrian Wine Marketing Board (AWMB) at austrianwine.com.

Austrian Wine is ready to be discovered

The warmth of the sun entices to go outside and into nature. This is shown even officially through, amongst others, the figures of Statistik Austria. The blissful months of April, May and June play host to 4.5 million Austrian holiday trips – the second highest number after the summer holiday period. So now would be an optimal time to plan, book and enjoy an Austrian wine journey on austrianwine.com. Because there are so many things to discover – beginning with a bike or walking tour along the Danube river; the opening of the Viennese Schanigärten sidewalk cafés; a visit to see the Lipizzaner horses in Steiermark and the beautiful nature parks near the Neusiedlersee (Lake Neusiedl). But that isn’t all. For those who are particularly attracted to regional delights and enjoyment on a high level, a wine & pleasure journey is exactly the right thing. This kind of travel is mainly an all-round experience, where wine and pleasure along with nature, culture and attractive places of interest make up a well-rounded holiday.

For some food for the soul, you can take a romantic stroll through the Kellergassen, or cellar lanes, in Niederösterreich, or visit the winery of your favorite producer, or take a walk through the vineyards and then enjoy a hearty Brettljause platter of coldcuts with a glass of good wine in a Buschenschank tavern. Experiencing the opening of the first buds of the vines or the final stages of fermentation of the wines are moments filled with emotion and wonder – which make the holidays in Austria truly something special.

Austrian “Wine & Travel” made easy

Where, when and how long is a Heurigen or Buschenschank “Ausg´steckt” – open to serve their own wine and food? Which winery has guest rooms? When do regional wineries hold their Weinfrühling – Wine Springtime open-house – together? Where are the places of interest? The answers to these questions and much more can be found on the wine-tourism platform “Wine & Travel” at austrianwine.com. This tool offers the possibility to search for and find interesting points and locations such as winemakers, wines, vinotheques, hotels and restaurants, and to combine them together in one or more travel routes. So, go ahead and plan your Austrian wine and pleasure journey, upload photos and videos, rate your target destinations and share it all with other users and begin your Austrian Wine Springtime!

    Heading to Salzburg for a week and I might be able to get away for a day or two to hit a few wineries. Any suggestions as to what would be the best option(s)? Would I need a car? Or could I do it all by train?
