Our Notes: The field blend method of Gemischter Satz was common among peasant vineyards for practical reasons, but inadvertently it has led to a style of wine that best expresses Viennese terroir. Because each variety prefers different conditions vintage to vintage, the wines show a wide range of texture, fruit, and acidity imparted by multiple grapes at varied ripening stages. However, because no one variety dominates, the wines are never so different from what the fan of Gemischter Satz would expect. With plenty of acid, bright fruit, and just a kiss of sweetness, this wine is extremely food friendly. Traditional local pairings include Kümmelbraten (caraway pork belly roast), Faschierte Laibchen (fried minced meat patties), Fleischknödel (meat dumplings) and the classic Wiener Schnitzel.

Bernreiter's Gemischter Satz follows the strict regulations of the Wiener Gemischter Satz DAC, Austria's ninth DAC (Districtus Austriae Controllatus) created in 2013 to recognize the unique aromas and flavors of Gemischter Satz.

Specially designed for the US by the graphic design agency Geyrhalter Wine Group and inspired by the Wiener Werkstätte (Vienna's Workshops), the Gemischter Satz label reproduces the painting “Word Play”, an original artwork by our good friend, Ethiopian-born artist Wosene Worke Kosrof. Wosene is an acclaimed painter who uses his native Amharic—one of the few ancient written languages in Africa— as the core aesthetic element in his paintings.
