Weingut Steininger

They are a family business in Langenlois. Here in the Kamp valley, Grüner Veltliner has, for centuries, been living in perfect harmony with primary rock such as granite, gneiss and mica schist as well as loess soil. From an optimum terroir, perfectly ripe grapes and careful winemaking technology emerge dense, smooth and long-lived wines full of elegance.

In recent years, their vineyard has become known for their sparkling wine production. Since 1989, they have been using bottle fermentation, and, meanwhile, Sekt has become a cornerstone of their business. Their philosophy: the base wine determines the final product – good Sekt can only be made from good wine. Their goal: rediscovering the varietal character, the scent and the fruit of regional wines once again in Sekt.

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. Kamptal is one of the most successful wine regions in Austria, and boasts a high proportion of outstanding, quality wine producers. Terroir is particularly pronounced in this hilly part of the country: soil, slope and sunshine all intersect in Kamptal to produce spicy Gruner Veltliner and dry, flinty Riesling. Like its southern neighbors, Kamptal takes climatic influence from the warm Pannonian Plain. Warm days are followed by cold nights, giving the grapes time to cool during the evening. The steep terraces in the north of Kamptal are particularly suited to the Riesling. Langenlois is home to the Loisium, which features locally produced wines and labyrinthine cellars that show the region’s centuries-old wine culture.
