Weingut Fred Loimer
The Loimer estate vineyards lie around Langenlois in the cool yet sunny Kamptal area to the north-west of Vienna. The conversion to biodynamic viticulture began in 2006, resulting in official Respekt certification for all estate wines. The grapes for their two regional wines are handpicked from vines aged up to 50 years. Aromatic and crisp, the Kamptal Grüner Veltliner and Kamptal Riesling offer excellent value.
