Poured - Wine Country Austria
Wien - World city with world wine

Wien is the only cosmopolitan city with significant wine production. The city has a high wine and "Heurigen" culture: originally simple pubs that were only open at certain times and served "Heurigen", or young wine. Today they are inns offering typical Viennese specialities: Backhenderl, schnitzel and potato salad are not to be missed. Sitting together in a cosy atmosphere and murmuring together is a Viennese trait that is explored in this episode. Vienna's four major vineyards are shown as well as the philosophy of some Viennese winegrowers. A typical wine speciality that has experienced a renaissance in recent years is the "Wiener Gemischter Satz". It is now offered all over the world: As a "Grüvi" in New York as well as a suitable food accompaniment in Japan.
