Its unique geology and altitude make the Käferberg
in Langenlois one of the outstanding vineyards in the Kamptal region. In a small area, you can find old crystalline rock fragments intermingled with marine sediments (clay marl) and rare gravels deposited in the Paratethys Sea millions of years ago and lie directly on the bedrock of the Bohemian Massif. Our vines grow at an altitude of approximately 340 meters, on two terraces on the southeast slope of the vineyard, where some chalky loess has also accumulated over the past millennia. The small grapes from the old vines planted in the 1940s achieve exceptional concentration on this soil. The additional salty-mineral freshness creates a distinctive and exciting contrast.
