NASTL

The Nastl family has been making wine in Kamptal Austria since 1656. The family, in its 10th generation is head up by Gunter and Renate ably supported by their children Christian, Alexander and Petra. Gunter is responsible for all the winemaking, a task, which in Character Wines' opinion, he excels. The Nastl vineyards extend to 10 hectares, focused around the town of Langenlois and encompass the quality vineyard sites of Kittmannsberg and Steinmassl. The wines from Nastl offer you the opportunity to try different styles of wines produced from the world famous Gruner Veltliner, Riesling grape varieties and some pleasing reds.

Austria's climate is generally continental with many varied microclimates and soil types. Rivers dominate the landscape with the Danube and it’s associated tributaries being the most famous. The summers are warm and the winter cold and the grape varieties planted reflect this. Many of the grape varieties are unique to Austria and that is what makes the wines interesting and characterful. Within the regions many vineyards have been identified as having a particular character due to their unique site and location and are regarded as offering greater character and quality. Therefore, we present to you these wines of character from Austria!
