Weingut Christ - Vienna

Weingut Christ - Vienna

Rainer Christ is one of the best in Vienna.
His main vineyards lie on the gently sloping south-facing Bisamberg Hill on the north-eastern boundary of Vienna.

The Bisamberg is apparently the most easterly Alp so Christ's wines are technically Alpine. But even if they weren't I would have to list them, as he produces such amazing bottles.

The Christs have been winemakers for 400 years and today the property is a remarkable blend of old and new with modern cellars and cutting-edge architecture.

He is also a pioneer of very gentle wine production methods, trying to minimise histamines in the wine. People sensitive to histamines will appreciate. The wines are also certified Vegan.

Rainer was a pioneer in reviving the classic Viennese Gemischter Satz. Other highlights of his range are the Zweigelt Bisamberg and the Pinot Blanc.
We think the Pinot Blanc is one of the best anywhere, and also the secret behind why the Gemischter Satz is so good

Vienna is the only major capital city in the world with significant wine production nearby. The vines still extend, however, into parts of the city itself, as they have done for hundreds of years.

Viticulture in Vienna is as old as Vienna itself - the Celtic settlement of Vedunia, and later the Roman garrison of Vindobona both cultivated grapes. The earliest named vineyards were documented in 1132, and by the late middle ages, all city districts had their own vineyards.

Viennese Heurigen culture, which so dominates Viennese wine to this day, was made possible by Emperor Josef II, who in 1784 passed a law allowing wine growers to sell their wine alongside home-made food. Viennese will often on a nice day take the tram out to go for lunch in a Heuriger, ideally one attached to a winery in a vineyard district. If you are visiting Vienna for business or tourism, take the time to do the same.

Our main winemaker in Vienna is the fantastic Rainer Christ, always one of the best !
