The loess and loamy soils that lie on the outer rims of Kammern, the traditional wine- growing village, are among the most fascinating terroirs in Kamptal. They gives our wines great aromatics with spicy and supple taste.
Great food wines!



Johannes Hirsch chose to rename his wine Kammerner Heiligenstein Grüner Veltliner from the 2015 vintage, to reflect its heritage and origin of the Heiligenstein Großlage appellation. The new description thus adheres to a vineyard village classification system similar to that in Burgundy. Wines from much lager, communal vineyard sites do now carry a specific vineyard name, and are referred to as their village of origin. Hence, Kammern Grüner Veltliner.



A mild winter was followed by a dry March. April brought extreme changes in weather conditions, with an unexpected, abrupt late frost, which has affected the yield of many Grüner Veltliner vines. The summer months were generally quite humid, with periods of heat spells combined with much rainfall. Therefore we were very busy in our vineyards. September was sunny and warm, with cooler nights coming more towards the end of the month, which helped to retain the aromas in the grapes. The 2016 wines show an abundance of fruit characters and are generous in aromas and taste. Good complexity with refreshing acidity and length.
