Wegner Joachim

The winery is located in the community of Bad Dürkheim (area Mittelhaardt-Deutsche Weinstraße) in the German wine-growing region Palatinate. It is managed by Dipl. Ing. Joachim Wegner. The vineyards comprise eleven hectares of vineyards in the individual locations Fronhof, Fuchsmantel, Rittergarten and Spielberg (Bad Dürkheim) and Herrenberg (Ungstein). They are planted to 60% with the white wine varieties Riesling (one third),Pinot Blanc, Chardonnay, Auxerrois, Scheurebe and Sauvignon Blanc, and 40% with the red wine varietiesPinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Dornfelder, Cabernet Cubin and Merlot. The vineyard is cultivated in an environmentally friendly manner with greenery and fertilization with compost and horse manure and largely dispensing with mineral fertilizers. The red wine grapes for the top brands are greatly reduced in yield by grape splitting.

Through selective harvesting at the optimal time of harvest, only healthy and fully ripe grapes are processed. The wines are vinified in accordance with the objectives of the company and are typical of the region, terroir, vintage and grape variety. The white wines are stored on the fine yeast for a long time, partly in barriques, after strong pre-clarification and controlled fermentation. The red wines undergo a maceration on the skins and mature for up to 36 months in barriques. Among the premium wines of the house are the "Ungsteiner Herrenberg Riesling Lunatic", aged in barriques and harvested at full moon, and the red wine "Cuvée Philipp" (Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Cubin), which is aged in barriques. In years with suitable weather conditions, Trockenbeerenauslese and ice wines are also pressed. We also produce bottle-fermented sparkling wine and orange wine. About 100,000 bottles of wine are produced annually. The winery is a member of the associations Forum Pfalz and Pro Riesling.
