The "Martin and Christine Nigl" winery is located in the municipality of Senftenberg in the Kremstal wine-growing region of Lower Austria. The building below the Senftenberg ruins, the core of which dates back to the 12th century, was formerly used by the Starhemberg domain as a harvest farm and was restored and rebuilt and moved into as a new domicile in 2004. In addition to the winery, it also houses a hotel and a restaurant. The vineyards cover 25 hectares of vineyards, which are widely scattered in the Dornleiten, Gärtling, Freiheit, Hochäcker, Kremsleiten and Piri vineyards. They are 90% planted with the white wine varieties Grüner Veltliner (40%), Riesling (40%), Sauvignon Blanc, Gelber Muskateller and Chardonnay, the remaining 10% with Zweigelt.
For my many years of work as an editor with a wine and culinary focus, I always like to inform myself about special questions at Wine lexicon. Spontaneous reading and following links often leads to exciting discoveries in the wide world of wine.Dr. Christa Hanten
