Wine gladdens a humans heart!

Wine & culinary delights along the Danube

Culinary events along the Danube

The grapes love the gentle influence of the Danube. That is why the Danube regions from Regensburg to Budapest are also rich in wine-growing areas. Even the Romans knew how to appreciate wine. Vinum laetificat cor hominis! – Wine gladdens a humans heart! Wine was an integral part of everyday life for the Romans. The knowledge of how to prepare wine and the different grape varieties themselves were spread by the Romans throughout history along the Limes and throughout Europe. In spring, the winegrowers open their doors to their wine cellars and invite visitors to taste the young wines. A culinary journey to the Danube regions is worthwhile.
