One can find many types of soil, including chalk, sand, gravel, clay, loess, quartz, and slate. The different soils contribute to the diversity of Riesling wines in the Region.
A Passionate Lineage
Wagner Stempel is a family business with history dating back to 1845. This estate is currently run by the 9th generation of Stempel. Daniel Wagner build on the tradition of classic wine production to restore fame of the family business. He also restored vineyard sites like Höllberg and Heerkretz. Meticulous work in the vineyards and care given to the vines are the basis of high quality production. The Siefersheim sites are carved out of volcanic hills, giving poor soils based on volcanic stone also known as porphyr. This typical soil gives wines even more mineral flavours.
