Whatever your preference, there is a choice of 800 delicious events during the Lower Austria Fall Wine Festival and it is easy to plan.
The lively Lower Austria Fall Wine Festival season begins in August and continues through November. Numerous wine and culinary events from rustic and boisterous to elegant and glamorous are staged in a stunning landscape.
Between events take a leisurely bike tour through the wine villages and romantic cellar lanes and enjoy a picnic in the vineyards. Enjoy breathtaking views of the fall colors and steep vineyard terraces as you sip exquisite Riesling Smaragd while cruising the Danube River on a ferry boat. It is easy to put your own custom-tailored wine harvest vacation together. The locals will make sure that you try the “sturm” which is the newly harvested, fresh, fizzy white wine that is still fermenting.
And every future fall as the leaves begin to turn color, you’ll remember the sweet, aromatic, fruity flavor and the warm hospitality of Lower Austrian wine country.
