With more than 10,000 acres planted to vine, Kamptal is one of the larger growing regions of Austria. Spread around the thriving town on Langelois, Kamptal takes its name from the river Kamp that flows directly through the region. The hot Pannonian climate is tempered by the cool evening breezes, providing the grapes with a longer time to mature on the vines, developing good physiologic ripeness to complement the sugar content. An enormous crag called Hell Rock, composed of weathered sandstone and with a volcanic soil structure, provides a densely terraced south face offering fine soils for growing the finicky Riesling. As a result, wines from this region, such as the Weißburgunder (Pinot Blanc) and Chardonnay contain a distinctive mineral touch.
