Weingut Dr. Fischer

The historic Weingut Dr. Fischer estate is located in Ockfen, a small village in a tributary valley near the confluence of the Saar and Mosel rivers in far western Germany. Written records of winemaking in Ockfen date back to the Villa Occava convent, which was founded in AD 975; viticulture, however, was brought to the Mosel-Saar-Ruwer region by the Romans more than 2,000 years ago, according to wine historians.

The Dr. Fischer estate is a member of the prestigious vintner association Verband Deutscher Prädikatsweingüter (VDP) and its world-famous Bockstein vineyard has been meticulously demarcated and classified by the association as a “Grosse Lage”, the equivalent of a French Grand Cru vineyard – the peak of the VDP quality classification system. The Dr. Fischer-Bocksteinhof estate vineyards are planted exclusively with Riesling.

In March 2014, Winemaker Nik Weis from Weingut St. Urbans-Hof on the Mosel and Martin Foradori Hofstätter from Weingut J. Hofstätter, Alto Adige, Italy, seized the welcome opportunity to participate in a joint ownership and revitalization of the historic Weingut Dr. Fischer-Bocksteinhof.

In another project, Dr. Fischer vintner Nik Weis and Martin Foradori Hofstätter of Weingut J. Hofstätter, produce a wine from sourced grapes from the Mosel region called Steinbock. A “Bock” is an ibex—a wild mountain goat in German, and “Stein” is a rock; the name reflects the fact this animal inhabits the steep slopes on the Mosel’s vineyards.
