The southern slopes of the gentle rolling hills are covered with vines, with glimmers of barley fields and dark yellow pumpkins in between. Fruit trees line the paths and bear delicious soft fruits. The light, sandy clay soils produce potatoes packed with flavour, aromatic onions, crispy lettuce, tomatoes and carrots, juicy berries, cherries, peaches and dark elderberries. The forests in the lower valley areas and on the hilltops provide the ideal habitat for wild boar, deer and hares.
The Weinviertel is an archaic landscape that has always provided people with the best and most valuable foods. The hectic and fast pace of life of the present has not been able to touch the majestic tranquillity of this area: here in the Weinviertel, a delightful sense of calm prevails.
The series of events called “Tafeln im Weinviertel” (Dining in the Weinviertel) expresses this wonderfully: The best chefs in the Weinviertel have sought out the most beautiful locations in the region.
There, in the middle of the countryside, they lay the tables stylishly and serve exquisite and traditional dishes from the delicious ingredients produced by the Weinviertel. Of course, the meal is also accompanied by fine wine, notably the peppery Grüner Veltliner, which is causing a lot of excitement as the Weinviertel DAC wine.
This event tickles the senses of the guests: the wonderful smell of the food and the ripe grain, the many pleasant and surprising tastes, the sight of the wonderfully relaxing scenery, and the discovery of just how soothing the sound of the region’s incredible silence can be.
The “Tafeln im Weinviertel” event series will take place once again in 2012. The dates for 2012 are now available on our homepage.
Accept the invitation to the land of delightful calm.
