And now, for something completely different

Nikolaihof.  Possibly the greatest winery in the world.  Certainly the oldest in Austria.  

Look, there's no way to make this relevant.  But it must be mentioned.  It's freaking old, they are a 100% organic, family run winery in the Wachau, and the man who took us on a tour was quite possibly the friendliest Austrian I've ever encountered.

If you ever find yourself in the area, definitely go, even if wine isn't your thing.  This place gives you warm fuzzies. Not the drunk kind of warm fuzzies.  The kind that you get when you realise there are still a few decent places in the world doing things responsibly and morally because it's the right thing to do.
