The "Weingut Dr. Heger" is located in the municipality of Ihringen (Kaiserstuhl area) in the German wine-growing region of Baden. It was founded in 1935 by Dr. Max Heger, who ran it alongside his medical practice. His son Wolfgang Heger expanded it in the 1960s to its current leading position. The founder's grandson Joachim and his wife Silvia took over the business in 1992. The vineyards cover 26 hectares in the Schlossberg (Achkarren) and Winklerberg (Ihringen) vineyards on volcanic soils. They are planted with the white wine varieties Riesling, Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc, Silvaner, Chardonnay, Muscat, Scheurebe, Gewürztraminer and Viognier, as well as with the red wine varieties Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc.
