The Viennese wine culture
Viennese wine & our restaurant Joseph II.
Viennese viticulture has a long tradition.
In fact, there is no other federal capital in the world that has as much wine-growing area as Vienna.
Naturally, the largest vineyards are located in the outskirts of Vienna's outlying districts. With the opening of the restaurant Joseph II. in Schönbrunn, we aim to bring the theme of Viennese wine closer to the cultural center of the city and society.
The Josephine circular ordinance
It was Emperor Joseph II who laid the foundation for the Viennese Heurigen culture by decree in 1784.
For the first time, everyone was to be allowed to sell and serve food they had produced themselves and thus also wine and cider and thus also wine & must.
As the founder of the numerous "Buschenschanken", Joseph II. is therefore to serve as the namesake of the new restaurant in Schönbrunn.
The Viennese winemakers: united in diversity
The restaurant Joseph II. reflects the diversity of Viennese viticulture. While almost 50% of Vienna's wine production is accounted for by the 6 winemakers of the prominent WienWein collective, there are also numerous small-scale winegrowers who are passionately committed to the cultivation and production of high-quality wines.

The vintage for this year's online auction has been brought into the cellar by Thomas Huber of the Fuhrgassl-Huber winery in "Neustift" in Vienna. "The grapes are healthy, fresh and fruity, and
as far as the acid structure is concerned, we can draw from the full.
I am convinced that a beautiful vintage will ripen here,"
Huber was pleased to say. Was he right?
