Mixing kit

Until the 17th century, a widespread and common form of vineyard design in Europe, in which different grape varieties were planted together in the vineyard "in a motley mix" for reasons of risk minimisation, in order to ensure as consistent a quality as possible. These are harvested and processed together. According to EU regulations, the designation Gemischter Satz is reserved exclusively for Austria. See also under Vine.
