Dr. Heinz Wagner

The estate is located in the municipality of Saarburg (Saar area) in the German wine-growing region Moselle, It was built by Josef Heinrich Wagner, the great-grandfather of the current owner Heinz Wagner, from 1898 to 1900 as a sparkling wine and wine cellar. He founded the sparkling wine industry on the Saar. The Wagnerian quality wines were delivered to some Berlin salons and also to the court of Saxony-Coburg. After his training in Reims (Champagne) from 1900, Adolf Wagner (* 1876) built the sparkling wine cellar at Schloss Saarfels in nearby Serrig from 1912 to 1914. However, the castle had to be sold due to the First World War and the economic crisis in the early 1930s; the parent company in Saarburg was preserved.

With the takeover of the core business in Saarburg-Beurig by Adolf's son Dr. Heinz Wagner was given the company its current name. Heinz Wagner has been producing sparkling wine again since the early 1990s, continuing the old family tradition. The vineyards cover eight hectares of vineyards in individual locations Bockstein (Ockfen), Kupp and intoxication (Saar Burg). They are only with over 30 year olds Riesling -Vine planted. The wines are fermented and aged exclusively in traditional old 1000 liter wooden barrels, of which there are still around 70 in the largest vaulted cellar on the Saar. If possible, fermentation is initiated without pure yeasts and proceeds slowly and at relatively low temperatures without additional cooling. The winery is a member of VDP (Association of German quality wine estates).
