Autumn Wine Walks in Lower Austria

Last updated on April 21st, 2022 at 10:27 pm

Guided walks through the wine regions along the Danube in Lower Austria show visitors how grapes are turned into fine wines.

Vineyard walks have a special charm in autumn: the leaves of the vines change into autumnal colours. The weather moods range from bright sunshine to mystical foggy days. Autumn wine events in Lower Austria offer tastings, visits to winegrowers and guided tours.

The Traisental wine guides are experts in their field. They accompany interested visitors on four different tours through the small wine-growing region south of the Danube. The Ahrenberger and Eichberger Kellergasse near Sitzenberg-Reidling is a good place to taste Traisental wines. There is always at least one wine tavern open in the longest year-round Kellergasse in Lower Austria.

The Wachau.Hiata accompany you through the characteristic wine terraces in the Wachau. They take their name from a task that was necessary in earlier times: vineyard guards protected the precious grapes. Today, the “Wachauer.Hiata” are characters such as fruit growers, winegrowers, herbalists or hoteliers.

North of the Danube, in the fertile loess landscape on the Wagram, the certified Kellergasse guides call themselves “loess guides”. They guide visitors through various cellar routes on specific dates and by appointment. Cellar tours and wine tastings complete the programme.
