Nov 14, Thur: KREMS' wine growing on its terraced vineyards is more than 2,000 years old. The soil and climate produces Austria's best quality wines, the Gruner Veltiner and reislings. More than 40 Central and Western European monasteries own vineyards around Krems.  In 1938, members of the wine guild founded Winzer Krems.  Today's chairman, Franz Bauer, together with 19 members of the board controls the destiny of Austria's largest wine producers.  
Winzer Krems deliver 990 hectares of vineyards with the harvest all carried out by hand.  Only fully ripe grapes harvested by hand under strict quality control are fed to the wooden press.

*****************

Our boat sailed at 8am towards Krems, and arrived at 1:30pm.  The two hour walking tour started at 2pm.

During our free time after the walking tour, Alexander and I went into a small wine bar, and a gentleman who owns a B&B in town recommended that we try the Gruner Veltiner.  It was excellent!

After dinner, we were treated to a visit to Winzer Krems for wine tasting during the early evening hours.
