2 of 9

Kamptal DAC (3802ha) Grüner  Veltliner, Riesling

There are so many renowned producers and single vineyards here they hardly need a DAC to market them. Soils here  are mixed, from Loess and gravel to volcanic – most famously Heiligenstein. Powerful Rieslings, rich Grüners. Kamptal DAC Reserve  permits subtle botrytis and oak influences. Launched with vintage 2008.
