Let´s go to a "Heuriger"

Heuriger is a tavern where local winemakers serve their wine under a special licence and cold dishes.

Each Heuriger is only open briefly although it may reopen again later in the season. It serves its own wine and a limited selection of food as an evening meal, generally local, homemade products offered as small dishes such as Liptauer spread, various meat, sausage or cheese and Wachauer Laberl (traditional bread).

Typical drinks found at Heurigen include Sturm, a partially fermented wine sold at the beginning of fall that still contains a fair amount of grape, and Gruner Veltliner, which is one of the most popular types of Austrian wine. Almdudler and Gespritzer are also commonly found at a Heurigen.
