we had a lovely afternoon up on the vienna hills on saturday. the weather was beautiful. just perfect for being outside. it's so amazing that you can get out into the fields/vineyards so easily and still be in vienna. i've said it before but it really is one of my favourite things to do here when the weather is good.
we visited two heuriger that we hadn't been to before. mayer am nussberg, which was a great discovery. they were playing random music (in what was basically a field!) and they even had a sofa to sit on looking out over the view. we also went to sirbu which is a much more traditional heuriger. it actually looks like someones house from the front. both were good but completely different. in mayer you go up and order your own drinks and food. in sirbu it's table service (like everywhere in vienna) but the service was pretty bad. apparently they have an award winning wine though!
