Winegrowing tradition in Bissersheim
In the small village of Bissersheim, the name Wageck has stood for quality viticulture for more than a century. Already in the 5th generation, the Wageck estate is managed by Frank and Thomas Pfaffmann in the northern Palatinate.
Goals and philosophy
One of Wageck's primary goals is to vinify mineral wines whose origin can be tasted with every single sip. Especially with the grape varieties
- Pinot Noir and
the Wageck Winery succeeds particularly well in bringing the minerality to the point - thanks to the lime-rich soils.
Wageck always works according to the motto "Quality originates in the vineyard". For this reason, the vineyards have been planted with old Pinot Noir and Chardonnay clones from Burgundy, so that low yields are achieved in a natural way.
The sites - Tertiary limestone
The wines of Wageck are characterized by a certain something: finesse. You get this from the tertiary limestone sites. In addition to the composition of the soil, it is also the orientation of the vineyards. The Goldberg site in Bissersheim and the Burgweg site in Großkarlbach are oriented to the south and south-east. The best conditions for ripe grapes.
Spontaneity in the wine cellar
In order for the wines to acquire a wonderful colour and expressive tannins, Wageck uses spontaneous fermentation of the mash and subsequent ageing in large and small wooden barrels when vinifying the red grapes. The white wines are also fermented spontaneously - partly in stainless steel tanks, half barrels or barriques.
