A culinary experience isn't complete without the perfect wine pairing. At The Bauernschmaus Restaurant, we take pride in not only offering exquisite Authentic Austrian and German Cuisine but also curating an exceptional wine selection to enhance your dining experience. In this blog, we dive into the art of pairing fine European wines with our delectable dishes for an unforgettable gastronomic journey.


1. Elevating Tradition: Riesling and Wiener Schnitzel

Step into a world where tradition meets innovation. The marriage of a perfectly crisp and fruit-forward Riesling with the iconic Wiener Schnitzel is a study in contrasts that results in a culinary masterpiece. Allow the bright acidity of the Riesling to cut through the richness of the tender schnitzel, cleansing your palate with every sip. Experience how the wine's citrusy undertones intertwine with the delicate breading, enhancing the dish's textures and flavors. This pairing is more than just a match; it's a transformative journey that elevates both elements to new heights.

2. A Symphony of Flavors: Grüner Veltliner and Apfelstrudel

Imagine a symphony playing on your taste buds as you savor the delightful dance between a zesty Grüner Veltliner and a classic Apfelstrudel. The high acidity and peppery notes of the wine create a playful contrast with the sweet, cinnamon-infused layers of the strudel. With each sip of Grüner Veltliner, the citrus undertones create a harmonious bridge that ties the dessert and wine together. It's an orchestration of flavors that showcases the potential for two seemingly distinct elements to create a harmonious culinary masterpiece.

3. Bold and Beautiful: Zweigelt and Goulash

Embark on a bold adventure as you explore the dynamic pairing of a robust Zweigelt with the hearty flavors of Goulash. The wine's cherry and dark fruit undertones provide a delightful counterpoint to the rich and spicy depth of the goulash. As you take a sip of Zweigelt, notice how its smooth tannins interact with the intricate layers of spices, creating a symphony of taste that lingers on your palate. This pairing exemplifies how contrasting elements can come together to create a captivating and memorable dining experience.

4. Romantic Allure: Blaufränkisch and Sachertorte

Indulge in a romance between wine and dessert that transcends the ordinary. Blaufränkisch's velvety tannins intertwine with the intricate layers of a Sachertorte, creating a sensual and captivating fusion. As you take a bite of the decadent chocolate cake, the wine's dark berry notes caress your senses, enhancing the dessert's richness. The combination is a testament to the power of well-matched pairings, where each element enhances the other's allure, leaving you with a sense of indulgence and satisfaction.

5. Elegant Companionship: Chardonnay and Käsespätzle

Enter a realm of elegance as you explore the companionship between a buttery Chardonnay and the comfort of Käsespätzle. The wine's creamy texture and subtle oak influence mirror the lusciousness of the cheese and caramelized onions in the dish. With each sip, the Chardonnay's notes gracefully entwine with the flavors of the spätzle, creating a balanced and harmonious blend of tastes. This pairing showcases the art of finding common threads between wine and food, resulting in a dining experience that is both refined and comforting.
