WINE GROWS ON HISTORY
OUR VINES GROW ON HISTORY MADE OF STONE AND WE CONTINUE TO WRITE THIS HISTORY.
In the northwestern part of Rheinhessen, around our home Badenheim and also in the districts of Wöllstein and Siefersheim, our wines grow on 36 hectares of vineyards, with the most diverse soil formations. Our grapes carry an immense collection of influences. Characterized by their origin of
SHELL BANKS, STONE SEAS AND VOLCANOES
we translated these diverse conditions into our wines.
VOCATION AND PASSION
GEORG FOGT'S SIGNATURE

This enthusiasm and passion for wine unite the entire FOGT team. Everyone contributes what they do best, for the benefit of the whole.
OUR ART DECO LABEL
STANDS AS A SYMBOL FOR THE GAME MODES
OF OUR MOST DIFFERENT
INFLUENCES AND PASSIONATE,
HANDCRAFTED WITH GREAT ATTENTION TO DETAIL.
Inspired by artistic ex-libris, discovered in books from the turn of the 19th to the 20th century, “our tendrils” have been decorating our wine bottles for 25 years now.
Due to the markedly wind-protected south-facing slope, our grapes always have the greatest ripening advantage here. The high gravel content of the clay warms the soil very easily and releases the stored heat to the vines for a long time, even at night. This is where our most substantial Rieslings and Silvaners grow.
OUR WINES GIVE EXPRESSION TO HISTORY
OUR WINES ARE
The variations of the soils, the climatic influences and always a consistent and long-term involvement of the winemaker with the vineyard, lead in the result to healthy, golden grapes with unique flavors. With all these conditions, the soil is our most important asset. Because only from living soils come living wines.
GEPRÄGT DURCH IHRE HERKUNFT VON
MUSCHELBÄNKEN, STEINMEEREN UND
VULKANEN ÜBERSETZEN WIR DIESE
IN UNSERE WEINE.

Diese Begeisterung und Leidenschaft für den Wein verbinden das gesamte FOGT-Team. Jeder bringt das ein, was er am besten kann, zum Vorteil des Ganzen.
SIEFERSHEIMER GOLDENeS HORN
The protruding, pointed mountain (=horn) has arched up by an underground lava flow. Here our vines stand on volcanic weathered rock and grow in a true “STONE SEA”. The terrain, located at an altitude of 250 meters, belongs to the cooler climates in Rheinhessen, here the grapes ripen slowly and the acidic volcanic rock provides pronounced notes of flint and salt in these wines.
With over 6,000 exhibitors from more than 60 countries, ProWein is the largest wine fair in the world and opens its doors to international trade visitors in Düsseldorf in March.
The Association of Traditional Sparkling Wine Makers joins us with about 30 companies and invites to the 1st Mainz Sparkling Wine Exchange.
