Private Tour: Austrian Wine Tasting in a Traditional Augustinerkeller

Bitzinger's Augustinerkeller in Vienna

A historic spot in central Vienna, the Augustinerkeller is one of the last remaining wine cellars once used by monks. Transformed into a restaurant in 1924, the Bitzinger family has been keeping Austrian hospitality alive there since 1954.

Make your own way to the Augustinerkeller to begin your wine-tasting experience. Located beneath the Albertina museum, the restaurants sits inside the well-preserved vaults built into Vienna’s old defense wall.

Head to the wine-tasting shop, where you'll enjoy an atmosphere of rustic brick walls and a crystal chandelier, designed by renowned architect Hans Hollein. Settle into your reserved seat and enjoy a sampling of a chardonnay, a white blend, a merlot and a pinot noir, all hailing from the region. Learn about the wines from your server as you sip, and nibble an accompanying snack of bread with pepper spread.

If you’d like to stay for a meal after your tasting (own expense), notify your server to continue your afternoon or evening with more wine, traditional dishes and live music.
