About Heunisch & Erben

The name says it all when you know that the term Heunisch refers to a quasi-primordial grape variety that once dominated viticulture in Central Europe because of its robustness. Today Heunisch is hardly cultivated anymore, it has given way to Veltliner, Rotgipfler, Riesling, Welschriesling and other grape varieties. The Heunisch, which belongs to the owner of Pub Klemo, is a modern, casual mix of bar and restaurant. Depending on your hunger and mood, you can have small bites or multi-course menus here. The kitchen can do a lot.

The wine list is less a history dictionary than a compendium of the most exciting, rather than the most expensive, wines from Austria, Europe and beyond.

More recommendations

  • By the glass to me is usually the most difficult, and this one really stuck out in a very impressing way. It's one of these venues where you don't need to choose a bottle, because there is such great diversity by the glass, said jury member Marc Almert when Heunisch & Erben won gold for best By the Glass Wine List.

  • The by the glass program at Heunish & Erben seems to have its own character and fingerprint. You can really feel a certain philosophy and person/s behind it. Besides having wines from different origins and styles it also includes lesser known varieties and regions which are always exciting to explore and discover. The list also includes Sake and a wide selection of fortified wines, both, dry and sweet
