Kamptal, whose chief wine town is Langenlois, is to the Wachau's immediate east and produces wines of almost as much finesse which tend to cost rather less. Kamptal is a little further from the influence of the Danube and can produce wines with particularly bright fruit from the likes of Schloss Gobelsburg, Jurschitsch, Loimer and Steininger. Kamptal DAC is exclusively applied to Riesling and Grüner Veltliner.

In a nutshell
Similar to the Wachau but with a wider range of styles and a very strong sense of history.
