As old as the history of Vienna itself is the history of its wine. In the Third Century A.D., the Roman Emperor Probus promoted grape growing in the Roman provinces, and here in Vienna the grapes thrived. Ever since then wine has been drunk here. Light, fresh and tasty the “noble nectar” trickles down the throat and makes one merry and warm. A special attraction is the romantic old house of the Mayer family, which is completely unchanged since Ludwig van Beethoven lived there in 1817. The façade is graced by a statue of St. Florian, a beautiful wood carving done around 1820, and is there to protect this lovely old house against fire. The Mayer family has lived in Grinzing and Heiligenstadt since 1683. All the wine they serve originates completely from their family-owned and self managed vineyards, and is of select quality. On about eighty acres of the best soil in the area, we cultivate grapes of the Grüner Veltliner, Rheinriesling, Traminer and white and red Pinot varieties.The greatest care and most careful bottling guarantee high quality and durability. About half of the vintage is served at “Heurigen”, the rest is sold in bottles. Our wines can be found on the wine lists of many first class hotels and restaurants all over the world. Ludwig van Beethoven lived in this house on Pfarrplatz in the summer of 1817. At that time there was a spa in Heiligenstadt, which Beethoven visited, hoping to find relief from his constantly worsening deafness. During an earlier stay in Heiligenstadt, Beethoven composed his 6th Symphony (Pastoral), and while staying in this house, he worked on his greatest opus the 9th Symphony (Choral). Read less
