Austrian Wine Regions: Kremstal
Austrian Wine Regions
some of the most typical varieties in Kremstal
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.
The Upper Krems Valley is a special region with mystical attraction which has always been an environment for a spiritual retreat. The region is dominated by ever present monasteries, always visible up high on the hills.
