The Vienna Cookie Company will be serving special Austrian cookies that are sure to satisfy any sweet tooth. You’re not going to want to miss this finger foods. Like we said before, we’d recommend trying out some of Austria’s liquid gold from Burgenland. You may have heard of Kracher’s wines before and you should be sure to try them, but don’t stop there! There are so many other great dessert wines to be had. The best part? They’re not the kind of dessert wines that are going to hit with you with a face full of sugar and leave you running for a glass of water. Although the residual sugar of these wines can be quite high, Austrian winemakers pride themselves on maintaining a proper balance of acid and sugar. This provides a refreshing finish on the wines and allows that leaves you aching for another sip.
A perfect evening for a perfect night – you can have your cake and eat it too!
