Region, village & vineyard
So then, in the style of the internationally relevant systems of appellation, KamptalDAC is focussed on a three-tier system of origins, divided into region, village and vineyard. On the first level, the regional wine, one will experience the diversity of the Kamptal, while the second step – Ortswein – reflects the time-honoured tradition of the local wines. The third category – Riedenwein, the single-vineyard wines – forms the expressive peak of KamptalDAC. Each individual category can immediately be recognised by the front label of the bottle: a regional wine is simply called Kamptal, while an Ortswein will be called (for example), Langenlois, and a Riedenwein bears the name of the specific vineyard site, such as Heiligenstein or Lamm.
