Austrian term for a drink made from wine and mineral water (i.e. not soda water). In contrast, a Gespritzter is prepared with soda or mineral water. For the mixture there is also the old Viennese term "Achterl mit Gieß" or just "Gieß", which refers to the once very famous mineral water "Gießhübler Sauerbrunn" from Bohemia. A mixture of wine and apple juice is popular in Styria (Austria) as "Kaisermischung". See also under mixed wine drinks and wine-based drinks.

There is a vast number of sources on the web where one can acquire knowledge about wine. But none has the scope, timeliness and accuracy of the information in the encyclopaedia at wein.plus. I use it regularly and rely on it.
