Our white wines represent the main part of our product range. Approximately 80% of our vineyards are planted with white wine grapes. These include Grüner Veltliner, Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, Red Muscat, Chardonnay and Rivaner. The excellent soils offer perfect conditions for our white wines.
Although the Kamptal is known for its outstanding white wines, the red wines are becoming increasingly important. Red wines are gaining in popularity and represent about 20% of our range. We offer Pinot Noir, Zweigelt and Cabernet Sauvignon and especially after Simon’s internships in California, we can rely on his important know-how in red wine production.
In addition to the classic product line, you will also find other specialties such as our unfiltered and skin fermented Natural Wines or our sparkling wines. We place particular emphasis on our Roter Muskateller #nofilter, which is now a fixed part of our range.
Our winery was first mentioned in 1641 in the register of Etsdorf.
Johannes Kemetner was called ``Vinitor in Etsdorf``!
Until 1995, our current tasting cellar served as a Heuriger restaurant in the cellar alley of Etsdorf.
In 1991 we managed to get into the Gault Millau Top 100 for the first time.
Since working in harmony with nature has always been important to us, in 2008 we decided to officially work according to the principles of organic viticulture.
After a three-year changeover period, we can officially call ourselves a certified organic winery.
Kamptal gets its name from the river Kamp, that flows directly through it, and is also home to Austria’s largest wine-producing town, Langenlois. With a vineyard area of 3,907 hectares, Kamptal is one of the most successful wine regions in Austria. The Kamptal DAC defines wines made from Grüner Veltliner or Riesling in two styles, a classic-styled medium-bodied wine and a rich, opulent dry Reserve style. Climatically, the dynamics in the Kamptal between the hot, Pannonian basin in the east and the cool Waldviertel in the northwest are noticeable. The play between the heat of the day and the rather restrained night temperatures gives the grapes great flavor finesse and a lively acidity.
