Day 4: Grein, Austria
Join us at historic Burg Clam for an exquisite Austrian wine tasting on the cliffs high above the nearby village of Clam.

While nestled deep within this majestic and historic setting, enjoy the opportunity to sample a few local vintages. Wines from this region tend to have a pronounced freshness, spiciness, finesse and complexity.
