Weinstube Nikolaihof Wachau
A Marvelous Grape, a Marvelous Place to Savor It
Terry Theise, acclaimed US wine connoisseur, once remarked that "Grüner Veltliner is the last of the great European white wine grapes.” Lucky for you, there is one place in Austria that celebrates this heritage like no other. The restaurant Nikolaihof, which is only a short drive from Vienna, is only one of the many charms of the region near Krems. The vinery is located in a 12th century monastery and is proud to be Europe’s first bio-dynamic estate of its kind. You can enjoy a crisp glass of Grüner Veltliner under the trees on a warm summer night and pair it with the fluffy, traditional apricot dumplings.
