Steininger Family

Langenlois, Kamptal

Karl Eva und Peter Sektflaschen 12

Weingut Steininger is located in Austria’s biggest wine growing village, Langenlois in the Kamptal region. Kamptal refers to the Kamp river which runs through the region and eventually empties into the Danube. The Kamptal area is filled with culture and tourism, which are enhanced by the numerous Heurigen, wine taverns and Vinotheques. The Steininger family estate comprises 135 acres and is owned by Karl & Brigitta Steininger. Karl inherited the farm from his parents in 1980, at this time and as young newlyweds, Brigitta and Karl decided to focus on grape growing and Karl soon found himself in oenology school. The winery was launched 1989.

Brigitta and Karl realized very quickly that they could only survive on the international market with high quality wines. “Our philosophy is to make wines, which show the fruit and the character of the grape. We love the stylistics, which we receive because of the cool climate and the terroir of the Kamptal – the flavors are clear, proud and expressive. We focus on the main varieties of Kamptal, Grüner Veltliner and Riesling. These varieties are very attractive to us because they produce very interesting wines from different vineyards and the different vintage conditions.” Karl’s chief lesson to his children is that good wine cannot be rushed. It must be given the time it needs to develop, mature and evolve.
Eva, the eldest daughter of Karl and Brigitta, already knew in kindergarten that she wanted to stay in the winery. She attended the Vino-HAK (a combination of viticulture school and commercial academy), followed by a degree in international business administration. Eva has been managing the winery since 2021 and is responsible for everything organizational, sales and customer service. Peter is responsible for the vineyards and the cellar, hand in hand with Karl. They live at the winery, together with their sons Julian, Florian and Sebastian.
