Gemischter Satz

A form of vineyard organisation that was widespread and common in Europe until the 17th century, but is still used in some places today. The designation Wiener Gemischter Satz DAC is only authorised and protected within the European Union in the wine-growing region of Vienna. In other Austrian wine-growing regions, the terms Mischsatz and, in Styria, Steirischer Mischsatz are also used. The grape varieties vary from country to country and from vineyard to vineyard. The different designations were mainly related to the vineyard stock, but also to the wine pressed from it. The great popularity of this type of wine in Austria is illustrated by an old proverb or saying: "A grape variety is a violin, but the mixed set is an orchestra" .
