Vienna Wine Tasting Tour

Wander through the Vienna vineyards and discover urban Austrian wine-making

Walking tour May-Oct Vienna wine tasting

The Vienna Wine Tour

Ah, Vienna. Famous for its classical music, apple strudel and its, er...grumpy waiters. But for those of you that didn't already know, Vienna is also the world's only capital city with its own wine industry, with almost 700 hectares of the city under vineyard cover. Wine-making in Vienna stretches back many centuries with traditional Heurigen (wine taverns) still dominating the urban wine scene. These days, many of these establishments are led by several young and dynamic Viennese wine makers that are helping to redefine outdated perceptions of the city's wine. Our Vienna wine tasting tour brings you right into the heart of the Vienna vineyards to experience the city's hugely important wine culture. A gentle afternoon and evening stroll through the Vienna vineyards is punctuated by a meeting with a local vintner to learn all about the work they do in the vine rows and cellars, while you get to sit back and taste their hard work during a detailed guided wine tasting.

Vienna Wine Tasting

Coming to Vienna and not visiting its vineyards and sampling its wines would be a great shame, as they play such a big role in the city's history and its modern-day culture. The wine tastings in Vienna that we organize are joined by the wine makers themselves, and they take place within their wineries, not some anonymous tasting room. So not only is behind the scenes access guaranteed, but also as much wine knowledge as you can handle! Wine tasting in Vienna has never been so real and authentic.

Discover the key to Vienna's quality of life

Heurigen culture is huge in Vienna, so to understand Viennese wine culture then you have to visit one of these traditional wine taverns. Heurigen are the secret behind Vienna's high quality of life, and the famous 'gemutlichkeit' or Viennese hospitality. Of course, on our Vienna winery tour you'll visit a traditional Heurige to see the role they play both past and present.

Gentle walk through the Vienna Vineyards

Our tour is accessible to most by combining a gentle walk through vineyards, interspersed with a wine tasting and breaks to appreciate the views. It is relaxed and easily manageable for the vast majority of people, regardless of age or fitness levels. Unfortunately though, due to some sections of uneven terrain in the vineyards, the Vienna wine tour isn't suitable for wheelchair users.

Vienna vineyard walk

Detailed Vienna wine tasting, including cellar visit

Vienna Wine Tour Meeting Point

The meeting point for both our private and small-group Vienna wine tasting tours is the entrance to Schottenring u-bahn station. There are two entrances to this metro station, each on either side of the Danube Canal, so you need to be on the first district side - just put 'Schottenring U' into Google maps, and you'll be good. The station is easy to get to from anywhere in the city as it is crossed by two different underground lines, the purple U2 line and the green U4 line. You can also walk there easily from anywhere in the city center, as it's just a 10-minute walk from St Stephen's cathedral. We'll meet you outside the entrance to the u-bahn.
