Farming Practices: Sustainable
Martin Nigl’s Freheit is sourced from 4 different vineyards in the hills above the city of Krems. The soils here are primarily löss, and the temperature is moderated by its steep elevation. The name Freiheit means “freedom” and is believed to be some of the first privately owned vineyard lands in the valley not controlled by the Church or a feudal estate. Fermentation and elevage occur in stainless steel and are bottled at night when the cellars of the coolest have Martin feels this helps preserve the freshness of the wines.
