Austria’s top Gemischter Satz wines

3. Weingut Mayer am Pfarrplatz

Weingut Mayer am Pfarrplatz, the epitome of Viennese heurigen culture, has been crafting high-quality Viennese wines in Heiligenstadt since 1683. No lesser figure than Ludwig van Beethoven lived in a house on the estate in 1817, venturing to the sanatorium in what was then a sleepy village of Heiligenstadt in the hope of curing his hearing difficulties.

Around the Rotes Haus, Mayer am Pfarrplatz has some of the best and most picturesque vineyards in Vienna. Now overseen by managing director Gerhard Lobner (pictured far left), the winery is renowned for its classic, rich yet mineral Wiener Gemischter Satz vom Nussberg, a co-fermentation of Grüner Veltliner, Riesling, Rotgipler and Zierfandler.

Grape varieties like Grüner Veltliner, Riesling, Chardonnay, Gelber Muskateller, Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir are cultivated on Vienna’s premium sites, the calcareous Nussberg, the historic ‘cru’ vineyard of Alsegg, and cooler, gravelly Schenkenberg plot.

Countless awards at national and international wine competitions emphasise the high quality of the wines from Mayer am Pfarrplatz.
