Visitors to the spa region just a stone’s throw away from the cosmopolitan city of Vienna will happen upon remnants from the Imperial age, wrapped up in an almost urban lifestyle. Even the Romans were attracted to the area by the prospect of viniculture, but also by the hot springs. The vineyards are strung out like pearls along a chain of hills, from Vienna’s eastern outskirts to the Baroque city of Baden in the south. Indigenous grapes like the Zierfandler or Rotgipfler are the specialties of this winegrowing region, and visitors here fetch their hearty fare to accompany the new wines, Heurigen-Jause, the traditional way, so straight from the buffet.
