Raise Your Glass: Cheers to the Wine Spring!

Travel, taste, fun: The new vintage is welcomed at the Wine road in Lower Austria at the Wine Spring.

Whereas for the vintner, autumn is the most exciting season, the most thrilling moments for wine lovers do not start until spring. Autumn’s vintage, matured over the winter, waits to be tasted in the spring.

So, when spring starts in Lower Austria, the Wine Year also starts in March: Everywhere along the Wine Road there are buds and blossoms, the wine cellar alleys are sporting patches of leafy green, the vintners open the cellar doors, make the wine press house and wine tasting room sparkle and shine, prepare little delicacies, set up benches and tables in the flowering outdoors and start with the exciting tasting of the new vintage.

For wine lovers it is the best time to get an impression of the character of the new vintage in glad company, to get to know the vintners and vineyards and to stock up their own cellars. Wine lovers, save the date: Weinviertel wine tour (April 7 and 8), joint wine spring of Kremstal, Kamptal and Traisental (April 28 and 29), wine spring along the Danube, in particular the Wachau Wine Spring (May 5 and 6) and Wine Spring in the Thermenregion of Vienna Woods, where 60 vintners will be presenting 360 wines starting in April. Later in the year, the Wine Quarter invites you to its tables: On 26 dates from mid-June to the end of August, 5-course menus with regional products will be served on tables bedecked in white in the middle of the Weinviertel scenario. At the Weinviertler Tafeln dining will take place among the grapevines with a vista of the open country, in the wine alley or surrounded by the walls of a fine castle.
