The traditional winery is located in the municipality of Rüdesheim in the German wine-growing region of Rheingau. Friedrich Nägler was already registered as the owner of vineyards in the oldest Rüdesheim stock book in 1826. Today, the business is run by the sixth generation of the family, Dipl. Ing. Tilbert Nägler. After his training as a graduate engineer in viticulture and oenology at the Geisenheim Teaching and Research Institute, he spent six years as farm manager at Schloss Reinhartshausen in Erbach and then four years as farm manager and cellar master at the Schloss Westerhaus winery in Ingelheim. The Straußwirtschaft can also host company and family celebrations in closed company.
