Since developing a passion and self-taught knowledge, Fritz Waßmer has established himself among the top winemakers in Baden with his internationally acclaimed Pinot Noir. His family has been involved in viticulutre and agriculture for generations in the village of Schlatt and this is where he was first introduced to work in the vineyards. He hasn’t looked back since. Even though it would take a few years before Fritz Waßmer would produce his own wine, the cornerstone for his great love was laid at a young age.
Since founding the winery in 1998, Fritz Waßmer has pursued his own wine style: independent, finesse-rich and profound wines.
He is passionate about Pinot Noir and his special affinity to Burgundy, the cradle of Pinot Noir, is reflected in his daily work as a winemaker.
With the same passion, Fritz Waßmer has dedicated himself to the cultivation and vinification of Chardonnay, Pinot blanc, Pinot gris, Auxerrois and Frühburgunder. As proof of his constant creativity, in recent years he has added plots with Syrah, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc and (very rare in Germany) Viognier.
What we do
In our daily work we strive to preserve and perfect our own style.
Every location, every soil, every variety and every microclimatic condition is different from each other. We endeavour to make these differences come alive.
Our aim is to preserve the unique character of each site and each grape variety and thus create individual wines of outstanding quality.
Just as the vines take their time, so our wine needs time to unfold and develop the independent complex structure that makes it so special.
Just as wine enjoyment is often an unforgettable experience in company, the cultivation and ageing process can only succeed with many helping hands. Many valuable people help us every day at the winery – whether in the vineyard, in the cellar or in the vinotheque. Together, we work hard to achieve our goals, day after day.
