The winegrowers' association in Wien (Austria) was founded in early 2006. Members are the Vienna wineries Christ Rainer. Cobenzl. Edlmoser Michael. Fuhrgassl-Huber. Mayer at Pfarrplatz and Wieninger The main goal is to set new quality standards for Viennese wine and make its unique character internationally manifest. Particular attention is paid to the traditional Viennese Mixed set which must be vinified according to the strict rules of a specially created association. The association successfully campaigned for a provincial law which became effective in 2015, which mandates the management of Viennese vineyards in order to protect against property speculation.
The association set itself the goal of establishing a classification of sites according to international standards for the winegrowing area of Wien , which was awarded to the Terroir-thoughts equivalent. In a first step in 2016, initially only the locations of the WienWein members were classified. From a total of 145 Viennese Rieden or layers were defined 12, which by their soil condition and the microclimate, as well as special quality of the wines grown there the predicate First location to earn. That's on Nußberg Gollin (Collin), Langteufel, Prussia, Rosengartl and Ulm (Olm), in Grinzing Schenkenberg, Seidenhaus and Steinberg, am Bisamberg Falkenberg and Wiesthalen, as well as on the Maurerberg skies and sentences.
They cover a total of over 18 hectares of vineyards. On the surfaces are the white wine varieties Green Valtellina. Riesling and Pinot Blanc ( Pinot Blanc ) and mixed set cultivated. From the year 2018 these locations will be on label cited. Following the vision of WienWein Winzer, the long-term project of layer classification provides for five stages: Ortsswein, Ortswein, Riedenwein, Erste Lage and Große Lage. So far, no "large layers" have been defined. It is open to any Viennese wine-growing business to join the project. In 2018, an extension of the Traditionsweingüter Austria around Vienna. The defined 12 layers now also correspond to the layer classification "First Position" of this union.
