The Kamptal is not only the second largest wine-growing region in Lower Austria, it is also geologically one of the most varied. This is also reflected in the diversity of varieties. Thus, not only the two DAC-classified varieties Riesling and Grüner Veltliner produce wines of undeniable world class here, but also the white Burgundies, Sauvignons and even reds can turn out excellent, which is why their vineyard area is currently also steadily increasing. Only in 2014 did they have a hard time.
The main variety in the Kamptal, as in most Lower Austrian regions, is and remains Grüner Veltliner, even if its cultivation area is currently shrinking a little, mainly in favour of red varieties. In 2014, at any rate, its dominance once again turns out to be a stroke of luck, because no other grape variety coped better with the conditions of the vintage. Many Kamptal wineries still seem to have risen to the challenge, judging by the results of our tasting.
