Heurigen Parties

November
St. Martin's Day, November 11, is the traditional time when wine taverns in Austria offer the first new wines of the year. Wine feasts called Heurigen parties abound in these taverns throughout the country and are scheduled according to an official Heurigenkalender . Traditional foods served with the new wine include sausage, cheese, and bread. Many taverns also stage operettas and other shows for the season.
