Kremstal

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

  • Terroir
  • Christianity and spirituality
Terroir

Primary rock and mainly loess all around the traditional wine city of Krems - and across the river.

The 2,170 hectares of vines in the Kremstal produce wines dominated by Grüner Veltliner and Riesling, grown on primary granite rock in the west and clay and limestone (loess) in the east and south. Notable vineyards include the Kremser Pfaffenberg below the Baroque Monastery at Göttweig.

Christianity and spirituality

Ancient places of worship, pilgrimage and pilgrim trails, monasteries, chapels and monuments of nature.

The Upper Krems Valley is a special region with mystical attraction which has always been an ideal environment for a spiritual retreat. The region is dominated by ever present monasteries, always visible up high on the hills.
