Wine scandal over Viennese organic vintners

Great excitement about Viennese organic wine "Schluck Vaccination"

  • With the “Wiener Jaukerl” and the “Schluck Vaccination”, we wanted, together with the Wiener Bezirkszeitung, to bring a little smile to people's faces, because it is especially important in times like these to maintain a sense of humor. We are very sad that we are now being denied this, but have already come up with something new. Because as the saying goes - every end is at the same time a new beginning

  • The last 14 months have made it clear to us that you just have to make the best of every situation. And so we didn't let this little setback get us down and changed the “Schluck Vaccination” into the “Schluck Vaccination CENSORED” within a very short time

Vienna (OTS) - 36 years after the wine scandal, the Ministry of Agriculture hunted down a well-known Viennese organic winemaker and confiscated all incriminated organic wines.

On April 08th, the entire supply of the wine variety "Schluck Vaccination" was confiscated by the federal winery inspection at the Vienna organic winery Lenikus. There have been no arrests to date.

The Viennese "Schluck Vaccination" is a 750ml serum made from the best fermented grape juice. This is not a substitute for a Covid vaccination and does not help against the virus, but is intended to improve the state of mind in this challenging time.

“With the“ Wiener Jaukerl ”and the“ Schluck Vaccination" we wanted, together with the Viennese district newspaper, to bring a little smile to people's faces, because it is especially important in times like these to maintain a sense of humor. We are very sad that we are now being denied this, but have already come up with something new. Because as they say so beautifully - every end is at the same time a new beginning ", says Martin Lenikus, owner of the Lenikus group of companies, which also includes the Lenikus organic winery.

Humor not wanted in these difficult times

Despite the great market response and the great success of the “Schluck Vaccination”, the Ministry of Agriculture obviously not only has no fun, but has also not dealt sufficiently with its own laws. There is no other explanation for the fact that this organic wine was confiscated because of alleged "health-related claims". Upon request, it was not possible to obtain further information on this illegal practice from the ministry. In any case, there are no relevant provisions in the Wine Act. The Lenikus organic winery will of course take all legal action.

For the time being, however, the label of the “Schluck Vaccination” will be stamped “CENSORED” in order to continue to serve the great demand for this product. From now on the "swallow vaccination" is called "Swallow vaccination CENSORED ", in boxes of 2 and 6, together with the "Wiener Jaukerl" in the online shop of the organic winery Lenikus at https://bioweingutlenikus.at/wiener-jaukerl/ .

“The last 14 months have made it clear to us that you just have to make the best of every situation. And so we didn't let this little setback get us down and within a very short time the “Schluck Vaccination" transformed into the "swallow vaccination CENSORED" ", laughs Sandra Ritzberger, authorized signatory at the bz-Wiener Bezirkszeitung.

The application remains the same:
Don't stir, don't shake. Just pour, drink and enjoy.
