In the south-western corner of Germany, the world still seems to be intact. Picturesque villages nestle into a fascinating landscape and an almost Mediterranean climate pampers the Kaiserstuhl – ideal conditions for producing excellent wines. Thus, it seems no wonder that the award-winning wine estate Weingut Dr. Heger can be found here. The Kaiserstuhl was formed from a now extinct volcano more than 16 million years ago. It left behind unique, fertile soils of weathered volcanic rock – perfect for viniculture. In 1935, Dr. Max Heger noticed this and founded the Weingut Dr. Heger here in Ihringen, Germany’s warmest spot. Now known far beyond the Kaiserstuhl, the Weingut Dr. Heger which is a member of the Association of German Pradikat Wine Estates (VDP), has stood for matchless wine pleasures since.
