Vienna's Wine Specialty: Gemischter Satz
Vienna’s Gemischter Satz is a wine of a completely different sort. Vintners within the city traditionally plant many different grape varieties in their vineyards and the Gemischter Satz is the result of whatever mix they harvest. This, of course, leads to an untraditional aroma that has wine critics around the world raving about this Austrian specialty. Notes range from mineral to honeysuckle and vary greatly between vintners who each have a combination they swear by. The best places to enjoy this surprising delicacy are the Heuriger, which are strewn along the outskirts of the city and offer authentic Austrian cuisine in a picturesque, rural setting.
