Austria’s top Gemischter Satz wines

1. Weingut Christ

Weingut ChristCarrying around 400 years of family winemaking tradition, Weingut Christ’s main vineyards are situated on the gently sloping, south-facing Bisamberg Hill on the north-eastern boundary of Vienna.

Highly respected grower Rainer Christ operates with a state-of-the-art, gravity-fed winery, using a combination of traditional and modern cultivation methods. The classic vinification method for Gemischter Staz, of ageing in large oak barrels, is supplemented by use of stainless steel and smaller-format oak barrels, allowing a broad range of possibilities during maturation of the many varieties that Weingut Christ vinifies.

The geological diversity is Christ’s Bisamberg vineyards is worthy of note, ranging from alluvial, glacial gravels and weathered limestone to loess and shale layers. The Christs’ Petershof winery in Wiener Bisamberg houses the oldest organically farmed vineyards of the city.

The Weingut Christ Bisamberg Wiener Gemischter Satz DAC comes from the Wiesthalen single-vineyard site – one of the oldest documented on Bisamberg, with current vine plantings aged around 70 years old.
