“Viennese wine” and “Wieninger” are nearly synonymous. Much of the prestige of Vienna’s wines can be attributed to the work of the Wieningers. The nearly 100-year-old winery was run exclusively as a “heurigen” (vineyard tavern) business until Fritz Wieninger, Jr., became manager of the wine production in the 1980s . He now concentrates solely on discriminating, high-quality wines. The wines are available mainly in fine restaurants and specialty shops. A small amount is sold at the winery. Wine-tasting is delightfully uncomplicated at the family’s own heurigen, which is managed by Fritz’s brother Leo. Approximately one third of the entire production is designated for export. Among the most important markets are Germany and the U.S., but the new EU member states have also shown a keen interest. Wieninger’s recipe for success can be found in the personal dedication of the entire Wieninger team. With that unique Viennese charm and grace, they are able to imbue in customers and friends of the house the winemaker’s philosophy and pleasure in the enjoyment of wine. Read less
