wine tasting near Durnstein

Are there any standout wineries to stop and enjoy a tasting while biking along the danube between Durnstein and Melk? I know the area is known for reisling...we are more red wine lovers. Do you have to book tastings in advance?

Dürnstein - near to the bahnhof you will find Dömane Wachau -

www.domaene.wachau.at

a fine selection of whites and also Reds.

They have excelent Zweigelt and also a Asso Cuvee.

Their website shows some of their wine and philosophy- some of the best grapes come there.

Most all wimeries of the Wachau are small family owned ventures - no giant wineries with tours and tsting on a daily basis. Few woulsd be open for you to just visit and expect a tasting session.

Many place their wines in Vinotheks in the area. There you can taste many of thodse wines.

One is in Weissenkirchen bxy the Danube Ferry Landing.

I was by there recently and the building appears to be in the midst of renovation- no idea when this is finshed,

Many wineries have heurigers - wine taverns - they have various openings - ut some are always open.

one such place Weinberghof Lagler in Spitz.

usually open April - middle June- you can taste their wine in the Heuriger Good riesling, Veltliner and some zeigelt too.

www.weingut-lagler.at

Another good place is Jamek- a fantstic restaurnat but also a little bar area at the entrance where you can test their wine.

Some of the best Riesling but also a good Rose too.

www.weingut-jamek.at

Also any number of places along the bike trail- watch for signs and some bikes parked nearby.

Some other good places , but must be booked in advance and some must have a minimum number of guests.

Much better to just enjoy your day - you will find enough good wine!
