Sekt - Sparkling Wine
In 1837, the Fitz estate founded the first “Champagne“ Production in the Palatinate (second in all of Germany). Johannes Fitz, known as “the Red Fitz”, had imported the necessary know-how from the Champagne region of France which had been his exile home following his activity for the German Democracy movement at the Hambach Festival in 1832.
Our finest Sparkling Wines (Sekt) are fermented in the bottle in accordance with old, traditional methods and are decorated with antique labels from 1840. Back then the “Dürkheim Champagne Factory”, as it was called, began with a cellar master from the Champagne region in France.
