This traditional estate on the Pfarrplatz in Vienna’s 19th District has been in operation since 1683, vinifying wines that were instrumental in establishing Vienna’s reputation as the city whose very name stands for wine. In 1817, composer Ludwig van Beethoven moved into the first floor flat on the Pfarrplatz and began to compose his legendary Ninth Symphony.
In contrast with the German import Beethoven, Mayer’s vineyards are planted to traditional indigenous Austrian grape varieties, Grüner Veltliner and Riesling among them. Their top vineyards are nestled in prime sites on the mineral-laden hills surrounding the capital city. The estate is best known and most renowned for its classic ‘Wiener Gemischter Satz.’ This specialty is made by collectively harvesting Grüner Veltliner, Riesling, Rotgipfler and Zierfandler that have grown together in the same vineyard, subsequently pressing and fermenting them together as well. The wine marries the characteristics of several distinctive grape varieties, harmonious in its unique aromas and flavors.Visit Brand Website
