Dr. Heger

Dr. Max Heger, a country doctor, founded the estate in 1935. In the 1960s, at the hand of his son, Wolfgang Heger, the estate developed into one of Baden’s leading estates and one of Germany’s finest producers. Today, his son Joachim and his wife Silvia are in charge of the estate and its 25 ha (nearly 61 acres) of vineyards, planted primarily with the Pinots Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris. The sites Ihringer Winklerberg and Achkarrer Schlossberg number among the warmest locations in Germany. Nevertheless, Heger’s wines are elegant and filigree. The weathered volcanic soils lend the wines perceptible mineral notes. Conscientious measures to reduce yields and harvesting by hand also contribute to the high quality of the wines. They are rich in extract, well-structured, and compact. The crop is very selectively harvested and only the finest grapes are picked.
