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 viticulture 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 Fruhburgunder. 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.
Very Burgundian in style. Balanced, with harmonious acidity, fine, ripe tannins and perfect fruit: raspberry, blackberry, even a little anise over a powerful structure. Despite an abundance of aromas, the wine is balanced and approachable.
