One of the eight specific wine growing areas in the Austrian province or generic wine growing area of Lower Austria. The name was given to the area west of Vienna this is the 153 kilometre long river Kamp, which flows through it from Schönberg in the north to Hadersdorf in the south and flows into the Danube near Krems. There is evidence of viticulture here at least since the early Middle Ages. Until 1993, the two now independent wine-growing regions Kamptal and Kremstal were united under the name Kamptal-Donauland. As soil types, mainly loam, loess and primary rock soils predominate. The climate is characterised by hot, pannonic influences as well as cool currents from the Waldviertel. Rainfall is rather low; in spring, autumn and winter there is often fog.
