Wines, Vines & Good Times!

The German name for Vienna is 'Wien'. Rearrange that and you get wine. If that hasn't convinced you already then consider that Vienna is surrounded by renowned wine regions, from the sun-baked Burgenland to the South-east, to the Wachau Valley out west! Indeed, Lower Austria is the cradle of Austrian viticulture, so we want to take you to the beautiful vineyards of its Thermal Region, just south of Vienna. Home to traditionally quaint wine villages and unique varietals, we showcase the finest in Austrian wine tours.

Bespoke pricing options for larger groups

Naturally, we can also host much larger corporate groups as well as families and friends, so do please get in touch with us directly to discuss bespoke pricing options for your private wine tour.

Wine enthusiast tour leader

I think the best way to broaden one's palette is to adopt a region-by-region approach. Having bravely embarked on this daunting challenge 😉 I was so impressed with the beauty & wines of the Thermal Region that I was inspired to start this company.

Wine tastings

On our Vienna Woods Wine Tour we will introduce you to all of the Thermal Region's speciality wines, either sat among the vineyards in summer or alongside one the region's finest producers at a winery.

Vienna Woods Wine Tour Itineraries

Summer (April - October)

9:10am - Meet & greet
We meet at the main entrance of Vienna’s central railway station, the ‘Hauptbanhof’ for initial introductions before boarding our train. Head to the u-bahn station ‘Wien Hauptbanhof’ on the U1 red line – see the map below for full details of how to get there.
Train ride to Baden
After a 30-minute train journey south, we arrive in the lovely spa town of Baden, once a favourite country retreat of Beethoven. We meander through the classic ‘Biedermeier’ village centre and its gorgeous parks before entering the vineyard landscape…
Vienna Woods hike & vineyard wine tasting
We take regular breaks, including one atop a beautifully expansive viewpoint overlooking three countries, and another to taste locally produced wine, literally sat amongst the vines in the open air (weather permitting).
Traditional Austrian lunch in Gumpoldskirchen
We stop in the lovely wine village of Gumpoldskirchen to replenish our energy at one of its traditional Austrian wine taverns (lunch not included).
Winery tasting
After lunch, with full stomachs and endorphins surging through our bodies, we continue with our education in Austrian wine as we visit another local producer for a wonderfully intimate wine tasting.
6pm - Arrive back to Vienna by train
The tour ends with a short train ride back to the city centre. You’ll arrive to your hotel in plenty of time to freshen up before dinner, the opera, the theatre, or the concert! Whichever it is, you’ll sleep well that night!

Vienna Woods Wine Tour Meeting Point

We meet at the main entrance of Vienna's 'Hauptbanhof' (main station). The station is very easy to reach using taxis, uber, or trams depending on where you are staying, but the easiest way is on the u-bahn (underground/metro). If you are coming from the city centre get on the U1 red line in the direction of Oberlaa, making sure to get off at 'Hauptbanhof-Südtiroler Platz'. Go upstairs until you reach the main concourse level and walk outside to the main entrance - the one with the big clock and the words 'Wien Hauptbanhof' on the glass wall above the doors. We meet here at 09:10 in summer (Apr-Oct) and 09:40 in winter (Nov-Mar).
