In early September - it's time for sturm.
You can't miss it, because it appears everywhere you go: cafe and restaurants inform: "WE DO HAVE STURM!", it sold in supermarkets and in the street you can see people that caressing it in hands. Don't ask me how I missed i]sturm[/i], but I did. For years! What the shame! Sturm- means storm or English. I guess it's about thunder behaving after sturm. Or may be not? :-)

But enough of mystery.
It's time to explain to Ausländers (= forigners) what is this sturm going about.

Sturm is a drink - it's grape juice in the half-way to being wine. Very tasty! Alike wine, it comes in white or in red "edition". Sturm is available only in the fall and has a very short shelf life - it must be drunk within a few days of purchase, but it's not a problem, ah? The fascinating thing about this drink is that it is still continuing to ferment--constantly--and Grape juice becomes sturm when it between 4% to 10% alcohol. Do you know what? Also when it gets into your stomach it continues the fermentation. You can constantly add water and stay drunk for longer! How does it sound to you?

Here are more reasons for travelling Austria in the fall time read this post.
