A sense of ter­roir

The Kamptal wine region is proud of its noble soils, excel­lent wines and vision­ary wine­mak­ers — and it is exactly this com­bi­na­tion that you taste in the wine.

In the heart of Lower Austria lies the charm­ing Kamptal wine route, steeped in tra­di­tion. With its 3,802 hectares of vine­yards, the region along the Kamp River is one of the largest and best-known wine-grow­ing areas in Lower Austria. At the cen­ter of this wine region lies Langenlois, known as Austria’s largest wine town.

Soil and cli­mate

Soil and cli­mate are what define a wine’s char­ac­ter. Kamptal is char­ac­ter­ized by warm­ing influ­ences from Pannonia to the south­east and cooler winds from the Waldviertel region.

The com­bi­na­tion of hot sum­mer days, cool nights, extended peri­ods of sun­shine in autumn and the char­ac­ter­is­tics of pri­mary rock, loess and clay are the main ingre­di­ents for incom­pa­ra­ble, crys­tal clear and min­eral-for­ward wines. Temperature con­trasts ensure par­tic­u­larly fine aroma pro­files while long grow­ing sea­sons allow the grapes to reach their phys­i­o­log­i­cal matu­rity.

Locations & vari­eties

The lead­ing vari­eties of the region, Grüner Veltliner and Riesling, reflect the unique char­ac­ter­is­tics of the Kamptal val­ley.

The names of the vine­yard loca­tions are deeply con­nected to the region’s his­tory. For cen­turies, the vine­yards in Lower Austria have borne names such as Steinhaus, Loiserberg, Heiligenstein or Käferberg. This dif­fer­en­ti­a­tion of the cul­ti­va­tion sites serves as an aid to ori­en­ta­tion and also defines the indi­vid­u­al­ity of each wine in rela­tion to the vari­ety.

The home of LOISIUM

Located in the south­east­ern part of the Waldviertel, at the lower end of the val­ley, this charm­ing place is steeped in his­tory. Nestled along the Loisbach, the town embod­ies the dreamy side of the Kamptal val­ley. Terraced vine­yards, splen­did gar­dens, cul­ture and places that are full of tra­di­tion will make you want to stay longer.

It’s bub­bly

Langenlois is home to some top wine­mak­ers who work hard and put their knowl­edge to use in the pro­duc­tion of sparkling wine.

Here, sparkling wines have been the cen­ter of atten­tion for a good 30 years now and the excel­lent grapes — char­ac­ter­ized by the ben­e­fi­cial cli­mate — the bot­tle fer­men­ta­tion and the man­ual work through­out the entire process all con­tribute to the impres­sive qual­ity of the final prod­ucts.

No two alike

Kamptal wine­mak­ers all have their indi­vid­ual traits of char­ac­ter — and so do their wines, the sparkling ones too.

An explo­ration of the sparkling wines of Langenlois will let you enjoy both prod­ucts with clear, puris­tic lines, those with vari­etal char­ac­ter, sin­gle-vine­yard sparkling wines, cuvées, rosés as well as “fancy” pétil­lant naturels, or pét nats.

Cultivation sites

In the Kamptal val­ley, if you’re look­ing for vine­yards ded­i­cated exclu­sively to the pro­duc­tion of sparkling wine, your excite­ment may quickly fiz­zle out. Indeed, the base wines for their pro­duc­tion come from the same vine­yards as the still wines them­selves.

The grapes des­tined to become sparkling wine are har­vested when their acid­ity and ripeness are per­fectly on point — that is when they are slightly but notice­ably ripe and the acid­ity has a cer­tain fresh­ness to it.
