The winery "Martin and Christine Nigl" is located in the community of Senftenberg in the Lower Austrian wine-growing region Kremstal. The building below the Senftenberg ruins, formerly serving the Starhemberg estate as a reading yard, the core of which dates back to the 12th century, was restored and rebuilt and moved into as a new domicile in 2004. In addition to the winery, a hotel and a restaurant are also integrated into this building. The vineyards cover 25 hectares of vines, 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.
The vineyards are cultivated in a natural, environmentally friendly manner according to the rules of integrated plant protection. The strictly selective harvest is carried out by hand in several stages and lasts up to one and a half months. The white wines are aged in stainless steel tanks and partly in barriques. The top wines are marketed under the "Privat" line. The Rieslings and Grüner Veltliner from the Piri vineyard are considered the best wines. The winery is a member of the Winzervereinigung Traditionsweingüter Österreich.
