Vienna is the capital of classical music. But classical music isn't the only thing that the Austrian capital has to offer. Vienna's wine scene is Austria's best-kept secret, with Heuringens serving local wines.
Heurigen (pronounced "hoy-reh-gehn") are wine taverns where winemakers have an exclusive license to serve wine during the growing season. Food is often served and music is also played, guaranteeing a good time.
Here are 5 of the best urban wine vineyards that you will want to visit.
