Steinhaus (literally 'Stone House') is one of the steepest vineyards in the Kamptal and noted for its small and narrow terraces.learn more
The name is most likely derived from the many small stone cottages spread along the vineyards. The vineyard is formed from the southern rock spoils from the 'Langenloiser Haide' to 'Loisbachtal'. The narrow terraces lie to the north of the town of Langenlois, on a south-facing slope with a gradient of more than 20%. The bedrock is a dark amphibolite and gneiss, sometimes traversed by light-coloured quartz-feldspar veins. The soil is generally very rocky and stores heat during the daytime that is released during the early night hours - a prerequisite of a particularly good location for Riesling.
Vine age: 20-30 years
The rocky sub-soil is responsible for the pronounced minerality in the Rieslings that we are able to harvest in our 30-year-old vineyards: providing fine flower and fruit flavours that are usually paired with zesty acidity.learn more
Sauvignon Blanc Reserve
Our Sauvignon vines also find root in this outstanding sloping location. The grapes mature to their full potential here and create fine flavours that are often reminiscent of elderflower, gooseberry and mango.learn more
