Winery in Vienna Woods

I was in Vienna last month and visited a wonderful winery just west of town in the Vienna Woods. Unfortunately, as I'm writing a trip report and labeling my photos, I can't remember the name of it and am hoping that someone here might be able to help. We took the orange line and got off at Ottakring, and then took a bus. The winery (a smaller wood building with outdoor seating and lots of geraniums) was at the top of a steep hill in a subdivision of both modern homes and more traditional looking ones. The wine, roast chicken and combination salad plate was amazing! This was my first time to Europe, and after spending much of the time on a tour (not RS), this was a perfect way to escape the tourist crowds and become a temporary local. Several locals mentioned that they ate their often and rarely saw Americans. I was hoping I could post some photos, but I'll email them if you contact me via personal message.

If you remember the name of the place let me know. My wife and I will be in Vienna in September and this sounds like the type of place we'd love to go hang out at.
