Fred Loimer's wines are playful individuals with its own signature, leading the way for modern Kamptal
Langenlois is the capital of the Kamptal, at least when it comes to wine. From the south, where the Kamp River opens up to the Danube, Langenlois receives a lot of sun and warmth, while the Waldviertel in the north sends the cool air. The soil conditions are equally contrasting: the vineyards stand on metre-thick layers of loess, sandstone and mica slate, 95 percent of which are planted with white grape varieties.
Fred Loimer's vineyards cover a total of 45 hectares, with Grüner Veltliner clearly the local hero and 30 percent planted with Rheinriesling. The wines are not heavyweights or fat bombs, they are delicate lightweights and playful individuals that bear Loimer's signature and are groundbreaking for the modern Kamptal.
