Round off your stay at Dürnstein Abbey with a good glass of Grüner Veltliner or Riesling! The Böhmer family's white and red wine, schnapps and liqueurs can be tasted either in the winery for small groups of up to 40 or in wine tasting room in the Monastery for lager groups up to 90 persons.
The duration and scope of the tasting, also in English, can be arranged individually.
