Ihringer Grauburgunder from Dr. Heger is a white wine on Pinot Gris, locally called Grauburgunder, from fields around the village of Ihringen, located on the south side of the volcanic crater Kaiserstuhl in Baden in southern Germany. A classic Grauburgunder with fullness, depth and a fine, creamy texture.

Colour: Golden.
Aroma: Ripe, juicy and fruity scent of fully ripe pears, compote of golden delicious apples, golden grapes and a touch of sweet baking spices.
Taste: Round, smooth fullness on the palate and taste of yellow fruit compote. Silky soft, dense texture with nice volume. Juicy length and dense fullness in the aftertaste.

Serving suggestion: Enjoy it chilled with rich dishes with fish or shellfish.

Weingut Dr. Heger was founded in 1935 by Dr. Max Heger. He was a country doctor, and since most of his patients were winemakers, it wasn’t long before he was also “infected”. Soon all his spare time was devoted to amateur winemaking, and in 1935 he took the plunge. He bought fields in Archkarrer Schlossberg and Ihringer Winklerberg, which were to become the basis for one of Germany’s most renowned producers.

Although Max Heger had passed the age of 50, he had to find a stethoscope and smock again when he was drafted as a medic during World War II. A few years after the war, he left the day-to-day management of the winery to his son Wolfgang “Mimus” Heger. In 1981, Wolfgang’s son, Joachim, entered the picture and in 1986 he also founded a “daughter winery” called Weinhaus Heger, which was to help satisfy the high demand for the now world-famous Heger wines. Here you allow yourself to use a share of purchased grapes from selected partners, but the team in the cellar is the same as behind Dr. The Heger wines.
