We decided to produce high-quality wine out of love for our hometown Vienna. We view ourselves as part of Viennese wine history.
The words „organic“ and „sustainable“ are not just modern buzzwords for us, they are our ideology. All of our vineyards are exclusively cultivated organically and tended with love and passion. We strongly believe that wine deserves to be enjoyed more consciously and with more understanding for its production. At BIOWEINGUT LENIKUS stand for sustainability as well as organic and vegan Viennese wine of the highest quality.
Why do you have to be patient with our current wine vintages? At BIOWEINGUT LENIKUS quality comes first!
We focus on a long and intensive maturation of our wines and believe in giving our wines the necessary time to develop their flavors without artificial help. Your patience will be rewarded, as our wines continue to develop over time and demonstrate a unique character and flavor.
Vienna is the only city in the world with significant viticulture. This is just one of the reasons why Viennese wine has been experiencing a renaissance for quite some time now: the consistent quality, and the impeccable taste of the cultivated Viennese grapes are just some of the reasons for the popularity of Viennese wine.
To be able to grow certified organic and vegan wine within an urban metropolis is a privilege – we are very proud to run our winery in the heart of Grinzing, a Viennese suburb known for its wine history and its beautiful location, right next to the vineyards.
"A taste of Vienna" in the glass: from Viennese classics, ranging from the world-famous Wiener Gemischter Satz DAC, to sparkling, sweet and rosé wines, to our rarities - our range includes a broad variety wines. We are sure you will find your perfect match in our product portfolio.
We only have one planet and we need to protect it. We have made it our task to contribute to a greener tomorrow.
Our vineyards are cultivated exclusively organically, a decision that means higher investments: More work, more time and usually also less yield.
Our goal is to preserve our soils and to treat them with care and respect.We are also firm believers of conscious consumption in all matters. Especially with wine, it is important to consume it with respect for the production process and nature.
We are fully aware that wine can be an intimidating matter. Often people are afraid of not knowing enough about the subject or saying something wrong.We feel this is the wrong approach, so at BIOWEINGUT LENIKUS it does not matter if you are an wine expert or a complete beginner to the subject. We are happy to introduce you to this wonderful topic and are happy to invite you to our winery and give you an overview of the fascinating processes of making wine out of grapes. Just make an appointment and drop by! If you have any questions about the viticulture of Vienna, what is the difference between “normal” and vegan wine or anything else, please also feel free to contact us via mail anytime.
Our basic principle is: if the wine tastes good, then it is good. Sometimes thing are as simple as they seem!
Our wine animals
Our testimonials are visible on our labels: the former Viennese inhabitants who once lived on the soils where our wine thrives today. Animals that lived at a time when the rocks were forming and the sea was still to be found in today's Vienna Basin. After all, they were the ones who shaped our soils. It is amazing that these prehistoric animals are still reflected in the characters of our wines today.
The porcupine, with its luxuriant back, symbolizes the diversity of the grape varieties and the multi-layered, fresh aroma with a tingling note.
The sea turtle
The sea turtle is a symbol of age and wisdom. Moreover, it once lived on the Nussberg, where today our ancient vines thrive in the memorial garden.
The woolly rhinoceros
The woolly rhinoceros is known for its powerful and majestic body. Attributes that characterize our wines - a real stunner indeed.
The fossil nautilus
The fossil nautilus is still found today in excavations on the Nussberg. It is associated with the shell limestone in the soils of the Nussberg sites, which gives our wines their deep, salty minerality.
The mammoth used to be a resident of our unique sites as well. Powerful, dominant and persistent are those characteristics that are reflected in our wines.
The Colius once colonised our vineyards. Its iridescent colour, elegant nature and feather-light body are its distinguishing features. This is also reflected in some of our wines.
The primeval horse
The primeval horse is powerful and elegant at the same time - like some of our wines that thrive on primary rock on the Rosengartl and Reisenberg sites. The Rosengartl site is one of the first sites to produce wine in Vienna and provides a unique flint aroma.
The cave lion
Powerful and fiery, elegant and flattering. The cave lion once strutted over our vineyards with its voluminous body and velvety paws - our Merlot and Cuvée Rendezvous pay a tribute to this majestic creature.
The cave bear
Mighty and powerful, yet playful and sweet. This perfect co-existence of these unique and contrasting characteristics of the cave bear are reflected in our wines and make their aromatics a very special experience.
Stately, elegant and powerful, the stag once strode through our vineyards with its majestic body, attributes that are perfectly reflected in our wine today.
