Wien, in Austria, is the name for Vienna and, as unlikely as it may seem, there are extensive vineyard plantings on the outskirts of Vienna. The vineyards are on the top of the mount, before the river descends past Vienna. The appellation for wines from this area is Wien.
Hubers have been growers for generations, with vineyards that now cover 31 hectares—26 in Neustift and 5 hectares in Nussberg and Grinzing, two other highly regarded vineyard site villages. Thomas Huber’s Neustift Gemischter Satz is comprised of 7 varieties, and his single vineyard Mitterberg, no less than 11 different varieties, some quite old and planted nowhere else in Austria.
