Austria - Kremstal
Kremstal is the region along the Danube bordering the eastern end of the Wachau, encompassing the towns of Krems itself, Stein and Und.
Kremstal is named after the town of Krems, one of the oldest wine towns in Austria. East of the Wachau and with its steep terraced vineyards, Kremstal is where the Danube valley suddenly opens up into an open plain with gently rolling hills. The main wine producing towns are Göttweig, Furth, Gedersdorf, Rohrendorf and Senftenberg.
One of the oldest wine centres in Austria, Krems has always been associated with wine, and its mediaeval character has been very well preserved. Today one can stroll through its narrow romantic streets taking in the Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque architecture.
The wines tend to be elegant with rich fruity bouquets. Grüner Veltliners are very approachable with soft fruit and a pepper note.
Our main winemakers in Kremstal are Walter Buchegger and his partner Silke Mayr

They are all here from the white wines of Wachau, Kamptal, Kremstal, Wagram and Weinviertel, through the magic of Vienna and the Viennese hills in Carnuntum and Thermenregion, all the way to Burgenland and Styria in the south.
