In this wine area, vineyards can be found, less than three miles from the central Stephansplatz. An interesting fact is that the more than 600 hectares of vineyards in the city are covered by the DAC Weiner Gemischter Satz. This DAC covers both the capital and the surrounding land. There are different types of soils and climates in Vienna, although the extreme cold in some areas is mitigated by constant urban expansion. Another factor that moderates the climate in this region is the presence of the Danube River. The most cultivated red grapes in this area are Pinot Noir and Zwegelt, while the best developed white grape varieties are Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc and Riesling. On the other hand, the most produced wine in Vienna is Gemischter Satz, produced from a blend of white grapes grown in the same vineyard.
