This trip did not enjoy the best weather conditions, but the tastings and tours made up the lack of sunshine. It was a well spent day away from Vienna, learning more about the Wachau Valley and appreciating all the labor that goes into growing and harvesting each year.

This tour was very special, the wine tasting was very nice. The scenery during the drive was so beautiful and green. The towns Krem, Durnstein and spitzer were all so interesting and super old. It was so fun to enjoy lunch with our tour guide and the other guests on the tour. The tour guide Iolo, was knowledgeable and funny! We enjoyed his sense of humor, he made sure we all had a great time! The river boat ride was another very nice part of this tour, there is so much to look at out the window.
