Spitz

Autumn in the wineyards

sunny 26 °C

Spitz is a cute small village near river Donau in the "Wachau" valley. There are many grape fields, the wine is of very good quality and thus very popular and famous in Wachau.

This day we were taking some ~2.5 hours walk in the wine fields and later tasting some fresh wine ("Sturm") at a restaurant along the way back.

The feeling of being a farmer is not bad, see, my honey and me looked so cool when we were sitting on the tractor, haha!

These grapes are nearly ripe for eating or producing delicious wine.

This place is called the "Red Gate".
When we took the picture there, suddenly so many visitors came, if not, i thought maybe the picture would look better.

After our walk we visited a restaurant to eat some local food, and drink my favourite type of wine, the sweet "Sturm".
