Becker

Pfalz

Map of where the wine is produced

Friedrich Becker and his family own around 14.5 ha of vineyards in the Southern part of the Pfalz region. He was the first of his family to distant himself from delivering the grapes to the local co-operative and decide to make his own wine. Right from the start he turned out as one of the best producers in the Pfalz and one of the best Pinot Noir producers in Germany. 60% of his production is Pinot Noir which is grown primarily on stony, chalky soil on the Alsatian side of the border and his wines are made, according to his comments ‘by instinct’. The same instincts seem to have been transferred to his son Friedrich Jun. who has taken over more and more responsibilities with his sister Helena.
