The origin-protected term Gemischter Satz is permitted within the EU as a traditional term exclusively for Austria. In the federal capital Wien this is the typical wine served at Heurigen (Buschenschank). In order to continue the old tradition, special specifications for a Viennese Gemischter Satz were laid down by an association. The logo consists of the letters "WGS" and a stylised eye. A sustainable cultivation method is required. The varieties used are Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc, Chardonnay, Grüner Veltliner, Muscat, Riesling, Rotgipfler, Jubiläumsrebe, Neuburger, Gewürztraminer and Zierfandler. At the beginning of 2009, the "Wiener Gemischter Satz" was included in the "Ark of Taste" by the Slow Food Association and thus worthy of protection and preservation.
