A Weekend Full Of Wine - Part 2

More Wine

Saturday - August 4th 2012

On Saturday we decided to hike around the vineyards, but first we had breakfast and then we did some grocery shopping. We walked to a nearby look-out from where we had a great view over all the vineyards. After we paid a visit to the little village nearby, we got hungry and strolled back to the wince cellar. Usually red wine goes with pasta, but due to the hot weather we decided to have a cold white wine instead.





In the afternoon we drove to Grafenegg Castle where we visited the so called Vinothegg. That's some kind of bar where people can taste different wines from the area. For 6 Euros we could try six wines. The good thing was that we weren't accompanied by someone from the Vinothegg, instead we could try the wines on our own. But before the wine tasting we walked around the beautiful castle gardens.

Back at the wine cellar, we got ready for the evening and later we had dinner at a local wine tavern. After we returned, we opened another bottle and watched the thunderstorm in the distance.
