About this package
Kittmannsberg is part of a distinctive plateau, which rises in the west of Langenlois and reaches up to 365 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.

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.

The Käferberg is certainly one of the best crus that the Kamptal has to offer for Veltliner and Burgundian varieties. Within a small area one can find crystalline rocks alternating with with clayey sea sediments (clay marl) and rare gravels that were deposited in the ancient Paratethys sea millions of years ago and lie directly on the rock of the Bohemian geological formation. Our vines grow at around 345 m above sea level, on two terraces on the south-east flank of the site, where some loess has also been deposited over the past millennia. All of this results in a wine with exceptional density and concentration, whose salty freshness forms an exciting contrast.

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.

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.

A vineyard that characterizes our Kamptal landscape like no other and is one of the most famed and outstanding crus in Austria. 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. This 280 million year old Permian soil is unique and has remained unchanged through the history of the earth. 60-year-old vines, planted on narrow terraces, yield a highly complex Riesling with a strong personality and a delicately spicy mineral expression.
