What is the best way of getting to the wineries during the Weinfrühling ?
Many wineries are located within walking distance of the individual village centres. The addresses are shown on the Weinherbst flyer. The locations are also easy to find at www.mywachau.at, and on the myWachau mobile app.
The Wachau wine sector is structured on a very small scale, we therefore ask for your understanding for the fact that most of the wineries only have limited space. Due to the Covid-19 situation, the wineries have to limit the number of visitors per location, according to the conditions avaliable.
Please keep one meter distance to other persons while visiting wineries and use the disinfectants provided. The wineries will ensure a conscientious organisation of the event by implementing different safety measures.
