Schloss Gobelsburg Kamptal

This ancient estate still belongs to a Cistercian monastery and the castle itself was built in the early 18th century. Under the winemaking direction of Michael Moosbrugger, with consultancy from Willi BRÜNDLMAYER since 1996, the wines have made amazing progress over recent vintages. 35 ha of vineyards give both Grüner Veltliner and Riesling that are […]

Loimer Kamptal

Like most in Kamptal, Fred Loimer has more than half of his estate planted to Grüner Veltliner but a quarter of his 25 ha is also planted to Riesling. He excels at producing both. The wines are precise but pure and expressive with real depth and length. On current form Loimer looks set to join […]

Jurtschitsch Sonnhof Kamptal

This traditional family estate, now under the stewardship of Alwin and Stefanie Jurtschitsch, is run along ecological principles and with parcels in some of Kamptal’s top sites, is making excellent progress, now producing wines of a quality close to the top tier of Wachau/Kamptal dry whites. In the vineyards particular attention is paid to reducing […]

Hirsch Kamptal

Hirsch, with 20 ha of vineyards in production, is one of Austria’s rising stars. Great care is taken to achieve full physiological ripeness while natural yeasts and whole-bunch pressing are employed in order to enhance a natural expression of terroir. This is best seen in two contrasting premium Rieslings. The Gaisberg from mica-schist soils shows […]

Hiedler Kamptal

The Hiedlers are an Austrian-Spanish husband-and-wife team. They make a wide range of styles including sweet wines, reds, and Chardonnay, Muskat Ottonel and Weissburgunder/ Pinot Blanc from 20 ha of vineyards around Langenlois. But the real focus is of course Grüner Veltliner, accounting for over half the vineyard area, and Riesling. With the emphasis on […]

Birgit Eichinger Kamptal

In Austria, as elsewhere, female winemakers tend to be a small minority but as is often the case the amount of quality wine they produce is not commensurate with their numbers. Birgit Eichinger is one of the emerging stars of Kamptal where her 8 ha of vines include the two top sites, Heiligenstein and Gaisberg. […]

Ehn Kamptal

Michaela Ehn is one of the quality stars among a group of 11 ‘Women and their Wines’ promoting female winemaking/wine production in Austria (others include Birgit EICHINGER, Silvia PRIELER, Heidi SCHRÖCK and Petra UNGER). Michaela runs 14ha planted mostly to Grüner Veltliner and Riesling and individual bottlings of both can be very good. The Titan […]

Bründlmayer Kamptal

Willi Bründlmayer’s organically run estate is the best dry white wine producer in Austria outside the Wachau and it rivals the best of those. About 60ha of lyre-trained vineyards occupy sites around the town of Langenlois. The most outstanding of these is Zöbinger Heiligenstein, producing superb Rieslings with depth, power and vibrant ripe fruit; still […]

Kurt Angerer Kamptal

Three unoaked Grüner Veltliners from differing soils are arguably the most consistent and balanced of this increasingly fine and diverse range of whites and reds from 27 ha. Kies from red gravel is harvested first and made in the biggest volume and has plenty of intensity and good structure. Significantly better is Loam from loess […]
