The Wein-Gut Nigl hotel and restaurant are located in the Krems Valley - picturesque at the foot of the Senftenberger Kirchenberg. The former reading court of Prince Starhemberg dates to the 12th century and was taken over by the Nigl family in 1994 and used as a winery.
The focus of our vineyards in the Krems Valley, lies in producing Grüner Veltliner and Riesling, with Sauvignon Blanc and Muskateller completing the wine selection. Blauer Zweigelt and Merlot are cultivated in the lime-containing loess layers of the Krems-area, while Pinot Noir finds its optimal conditions in the vineyard Pfenningberg, a very steep mica schist. Our Rieslings and Grüner Veltliners represent top quality from Austria: wines rich in elegance and finesse from Kremstal.
The philosophy of our winery
"The trick is to create a perfectly balanced wine, bringing everything from the vineyard unscathed to the bottle: fruit, finesse, elegance, density and minerality." - Martin Nigl
