About this package
→ Ried KITTMANNSBERG 1.ÖTW
Kittmannsberg is part of a distinctive plateau, which rises in the west of Langenlois and reaches up to 345 m above sea level. It has a characteristic bowl-shaped topographic depression in which an autonomous microclimate is formed, favouring long ripening periods and thus a late harvest. Here we find traces of a past, shallow sea. The mineral-rich soil is formed of calcerous clays, loess and loam. The cru lends this Veltliner an expression of yellow fruits, a delicate herbal spiciness and a silky-mineral texture.

→ Ried SCHENKENBICHL 1.ÖTW
The grapes of this Veltliner come from the highest elevated terraces of the Schenkenbichl vineyard, grown at about 315 m above sea level. Here, our 60-year-old vines are rooted deep in the brittle, metamorphic rock soil, which is formed of the remains of an ancient mountain range. It predominantly consists of dark amphibolite, reaching to the surface. The influence of those rocks is reflected in the wines, which are cool and elegant with a spicy-mineral saltiness to them.
→ Ried STEINHAUS 1.ÖTW
Steinhaus, literally Stonehouse, is the steepest vineyard in Langenlois. It probably takes its name from the ancient stone shelters, whose remains can be found scattered in the vineyards. The barren slope is characterized by small terraces, which were partly carved into the crystalline rock centuries ago. The vines have to dig deep to find access to water. They grow on a rocky soil formed of gneiss and amphibolite, traversed by quartz. The location produces a unique, elegantly fruity type of Riesling that expresses a very cool minerality.

→ Ried GAISBERG 1.ÖTW
With its milder microclimate, the exposed Gaisberg is one of the historically most important Riesling vineyards in the Kamptal. A vast variety of metamorphic and crystalline rocks form its soils. On two terraces, our vines dig their roots into Paragneiss. Occasionally there are islands of granite and marble, with shallow covers of loess at the foot of the hill. The concentrated Rieslings of this slope are characterized by their expressive fruit and warm minerality.

→ Ried KOGELBERG 1.ÖTW
Kogelberg forms the northernmost tip of Kamptals 'Erste Lage' vineyards. It lies north of the village of Zöbing, where the narrow valley situation opens up towards the Langenlois basin. At this point we find a more pronounced climatic influence of the high Waldviertel plateau, as cooling air currents push in at dusk. This creates exciting microclimatic conditions. The vines grow on bronze-colored mica schist, a crystalline rock formation. It is a particularly cool-fruited and dark-mineral character that marks the Riesling wines of this slope.

→ Ried HEILIGENSTEIN 1.ÖTW
It is one of the most famed and best crus in Austria and shapes the appearance of the Kamptal landscape like no other vineyard. The Heiligenstein is a unique geological formation within Europe; a geological island. The old vines grow on a complex sedimentary soil structure, on sandstone conglomerate with red arkoses and volcanic quartz porphyries. The narrow terraces yield a highly complex Riesling with strong personality.
