Taproom wine

Designation (also everyday wine, consumer wine, drinking wine, tap wine, Zechwein) for a simple but flawless wine without special quality, which is usually intended for quick drinking pleasure. However, the name has no meaning in terms of wine law. In most cases, it is understood as a wine poured from a larger container. This can be a barrel, a tank or a glass balloon. This is particularly common in rustic wine bars such as Buschenschank and Heuriger. Therefore such wines are also called open wines (openly poured). The terms barrel wine (bottling) and bulk wine (quality) have partly similar meanings. The term Schüttwein (bulk wine), which is common in Austria, is to be understood negatively.
