Wien & Wein – Escort Wien
On the trail of noble drops
Vienna and the wine – that is a very special connection. Start this tour with your Bijou-Lady with a ride over the historic Höhenstraße up to the Latisberg. Up here you will find the well-known wine estate Cobenzl with a magnificent view of the city. Already in the 13th century wine was used in this area, and at the end of the 18th century, Johann Philipp Graf Cobenzl had a generous castle built here to celebrate with the aristocratic party celebrations. Today the Cobenzl estate is one of the most renowned addresses for excellent Viennese wines. During a guided tour through the wine cellar and the press house, you will learn about the artisan of the vintner, the art of pressing, and of course some wines are also tasted. At the next coffee-break with your Bijou-Lady at Café Cobenzl, you can enjoy the fantastic view in addition to classic Viennese flour-dishes before heading west again over the Höhenstraße to Vienna.
Just before you return to the vibrant city life, you should stop at Hüttelbergstraße 26 at the Ernst Fuchs Museum. The world-famous painter and founder of the school of fantastic realism saved this architectural jewel, which impressed him as a small child, before the decay, lovingly renovated it and shows today in these rooms many great works of his work.
From the art of painting, we return to the art of pressing, right into the oldest and deepest wine cellar in the Viennese city center – the wine cellar Villon. 500 years old and 16 meters deep, you and your bijou lady here on 4 floors know everything you have not yet known about the Viennese wine. The Villon Weinkeller is well-known for special wines off the mainstream and so you will be guaranteed to discover a few new, splendid wines for you.
When you get up from the Villon Weinkeller and turn left around the corner, you will see the Meinl am Graben restaurant, a Viennese institution with an exciting kitchen, charming service and a wonderful wine menu. With a few aphrodisiac oysters to the start you can already have a taste for later. After the delicious dessert, your Bijou Lady will introduce you to other intimate Viennese specialties at the famous Hotel Sacher, so that the enjoyment of this night will never end.
