There’s a Sturm a’ brewing

September is Sturm season!

September is Sturm season! If you visit a Heuriger at this time of year, you’ll be able to sip on the sweet and sour delight of Sturm. The semi-fermented, alcoholic grape juice made from the first grapes of the wine harvest season is a tradition that has played out for many years in Austria’s wine taverns. And it’s a drink worth experiencing amongst the changing colours of Autumn happening in Vienna’s wine hills at this time of year. Watch the brown leaves fall to the ground, and let the Sturm keep you warm.
