The Kamp Valley

… a region to live and work and be happy!

Kamptal - Weingärten am Heiligenstein

The perfect combination of soil and climate lays the foundation of high quality wines. The Kamp Valley offers a big variety of different combinations of these factors and thus yields wines with finesse and diversity. On one hand we can rely on three different kinds of soil (bedrock, loess and clay) and on the other hand the region presents us with its unique climate. Typically we experience hot summer days with cool nights and a long and sunny autumn season. These contrasting conditions give the Kamp Valley wines their unparalleled, crystal-clear, mineral character.


… the sweet side of the Kamp Valley

Langenlois Kornplatz

Langenlois is the sweet side of the Kamptal – a place to discover, to enjoy nature, the vineyards and beautiful gardens. Old and new architecture lives side by side and inspires the senses of its visitors.

Architectural enthusiasts find a fascinating synthesis of traditional old cellars (where the winemakers show their production) and ultra-modern temples of wine culture. This concurrence of old and new can also be experienced in many cultural events all over the year.

Wine Trail Langenlois

… experience wine with all your senses!

Weinweg Langenlois - Kostbares Kamptal

The Wine Trail Langenlois leads through famous Langenlois’ vineyard sites like Dechant, Käferberg, Steinhaus and Schenkenbichl, taking you on a journey of disovery into the exciting and challenging vineyard workplace. It lets visitors immerse themselves into the everyday life and minds of the winemakers, thereby revealing what constitutes the work, joys and concerns of a winemaker’s life.

Visitors get to know the Kamp Valley wine region, the Langenlois winemakers and wines, while learning all kinds of interesting facts about vine cultivation. The vineyard topics are illustrated by some spectacular installations and sculptures such as a metre long earhworm burrowing through the vineyard soil which accompanies the topic “tillage”, a “giant pupitre” which becomes a viewing platform, or a swing that invites you to monitor the weather and many more. The “wine safes” are a special extra for wine hikers. In three vineyard huts along the route, well-chilled wines are available for tasting. The rental key to open those “wine safes” as well as tasting sets – convenient shoulder bags with Riedel glasses and a wine trail book – are available at the starting points for a fee (groups by prior arrangement). (EUR 20.00 per Person)
