Weininger is a family business, practicing biodynamic, sustainable viticulture in the metropolis of Vienna, Austria. Their wines are of the highest quality, made with respect for nature, and sustainability passed down through generations.

Their vineyards on the Bisamberg and Nussberg hills, separated by the Danube river, boast different soils and climates. Through natural farming practices, the producers make a wide range of lively wines with character, showcasing the uniqueness of the Vienna region. Their wines have achieved international tasting successes and are exported to 45 countries across all continents.

The talented winemaker and owner Fritz Wieninger has over 30 years of experience, and he consistently adheres to the guiding principle of quality. As a pioneer in Viennese wine of the present, he is already referred to as the doyen of Viennese wine. He says “even in my youth, I dreamt of a winery with wines full of character and international acclaim. I knew early on that I had to pursue the path of quality and professionalism. Nothing has changed in that regard: Today, Wieninger represents top-quality wines from Vienna and is internationally sought after.”

The “Ulm” is a Monopollage on the Nußberg, right next to the Danube, extremely steep and extremely chalky. Nine different varieties grow here in a colourful mix in the vineyard and wonderfully express the terroir of this location. This Gemischter Satz DAC is composed of 9 grape varieties – Pinot Blanc, Neuburger, Welschriesling, Grüner Veltliner, Sylvaner, Zierfandler, Rotgipfler, Traminer, and Riesling – all handpicked and carefully selected, with botrytis-affected grapes removed before processing. After approximately 3 hours of maceration, the grapes were gently pressed using a pneumatic press, and fermentation took place in cooled stainless steel tanks (75%) and large, used oak barrels (25%). The wine is bottled following nearly a year of ageing on the lees.

This white displays a bright lemon-yellow colour, a wonderful aromatic profile, and an elegant bouquet of ripe white and yellow fruits with fossil-rich limestone aromas. On the palate, it is full-bodied, offering a very fine and elegant blend with concentrated, perfectly balanced fruit and a touch of saltiness. A wine with character!

Food pairing suggestion: Chicken in white wine sauce.

Did you know? “Wiener Gemischter” refers to a traditional Viennese wine style called “Gemischter Satz.” Gemischter Satz translates to “mixed set” or “mixed blend” and typically involves multiple grape varieties grown together in the same vineyard and harvested and vinified together to create a unique and complex wine. This style has a long history in Vienna and is considered a hallmark of the city’s winemaking tradition.
