Buschenschank

auberge d`un vigneron qui vend le vin de sa production (F)
premises, where the winegrower sells his wine by the glass (GB)
locale di un vinicoltore solo con i suoi vini (I)

Name for a certain type of wine bar, where at certain times wine produced by the operator is served. The name comes from the "bush" made of green branches above the entrance gate, which indicates that the restaurant has opened. In Germany there are also other terms for ostrich, broom or hedge management. In Austria, especially in the capital Wien are called these bars Winery, The regulations for the operation of such wine bars are said to be Kaiser Charlemagne (742–814), but no original source is known. In any case, the regulations in the two countries are quite similar. Typical of such restaurants is the mostly rustic furnishings, a selection of simple, often hearty dishes and above all the cozy, often familiar atmosphere.
