The traditional “Weingut Wien Cobenzl” is located in the 19th district of Döbling in the district of Vienna Grinzing in the northwest of the Austrian capital in the middle of the Vienna Woods. Wine was made on the Latisberg (now Cobenzl) as early as the 13th century. In 1774 the property passed to Johann Philipp Graf Cobenzl (1741-1810). He had a castle built with beautiful parks, temples and pavilions, where the Viennese court celebrated numerous lavish celebrations. After Count Cobenzl, the castle and grounds changed hands several times until the city of Wien 1907 under Mayor Dr. Karl Lueger (1844-1910) bought the Cobenzl estate to create a recreation area here. Over the years, the business was then converted to viticulture.
