Description to Kamptal DAC
One of the eight specific wine-growing areas in the Austrian province or generic wine-growing region of Lower Austria. The area to the west of Wien was named after the 153-kilometre-long Kamp River, which flows through it from Schönberg in the north to Hadersdorf in the south and flows into the Danube near Krems. There is evidence of viticulture here at least since the early Middle Ages. Until 1993, the two wine-growing regions of Kamptal and Kremstal, which are now independent, were united under the name Kamptal-Donauland. The predominant soil types are loam, loess and primary rock. The climate is characterised by hot, Pannonian influences as well as cool currents from the Waldviertel. Precipitation is rather low; there is often fog in spring, autumn and winter.
In 2015, the vineyards covered a total of 3,907 hectares of vines. Compared to 2009 with 3,802 hectares, this was an increase of 3%. The share of red wine varieties is 20.4%, the share of white wine varieties 79.6%. More than half of the vineyards are dominated by Grüner Veltliner, followed by Zweigelt and Riesling.
Starting with the 2008 vintage, the origin-controlled quality level Kamptal DAC was introduced. All other quality wines must be marketed with the origin Lower Austria, the country wines under the winegrowing region designation Weinland. In addition to the generally valid DAC conditions, special rules apply.
