Autumn in Burgenland You experience Burgenland wine intensely in autumn. We like wine and wine regions. Petar grew up in a wine region. He knows that. But for me our stay at Lake Neusiedl in Burgenland is something special. We are here in autumn and the grape leaves are turning more and more color every day. The winemakers decorate [...]
What could be nicer than ending a mild summer evening with a cool glass of wine. That is pure wine enjoyment! A light and tangy wine tastes best in the heat of summer. Portuguese Vinho Verde is perfect for summer enjoyment.
We visit the Tenuta Neri winery, which is located in the hills above the seaside resort of Cesenatico. A low building stands in a lot on one of the hills above the city. Valeria and Giovanni Tenuta Neri live here and have a long family tradition of growing wine.

I associated the idea that it was a wine [...]

Pumpkin seed oil is one of the most important products from the southern Styria region in Austria. Again and again you see along the streets [...]
“Those who can enjoy no longer drink wine, they taste secrets!” This sentence by Salvador Dali above the bed in our vintner's room in the Hotel Althof Retz puts me in a wine-blissful mood. This should not leave me until the end of our stay in this hotel. It cannot be overlooked that in the Hotel Althof Retz the wine [...]
