Seck Winery – South of Mainz Since 1980
Seck Winery is located in the center of the Rheinhessen winegrowing region around 25 km south to the city of Mainz. The winery occupies a space in the village of Dolgesheim, where winemaking has occurred for 1200 years filled with rich history and tradition. Seck Winery was built outside Dolgesheim in 1980 and is managed by Claudia and Axel along with their children, Georg and Alicia, and parents, Ida and Klaus Seck. Their quality wines are enjoyed all over the country and are also exported to many countries worldwide. The winery became organic in 2007 with the aim to protect the environment and the health of their vineyards for future generations.
18 Hectares of Vineyards in Dolgesheim and Surrounding Villages
Seck Winery vineyards cover an area of 18 hectares throughout Dolgesheim and the surrounding villages of Weinolsheim, Durkheim, and Hillesheim. The soils are sandy and filled with clay which, along with a unique microclimate, makes the region perfect for vine-cultivation and has a strong influence on their wines. The yield from their vineyards is low, but the fruits are of high quality. The workers carefully prune the vines, remove the leaves, and select the best grapes for their wines.
Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris, and Muscaris at the Winery
The main grape varieties grown at Seck Winery include Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris, and Muscaris. The best grapes help to produce their character-filled red, white, rosé, sparkling, and dessert wines. Fermentation of the wines takes place with whole berries, uncrushed, giving an excellent taste and structure to the wines. Aging in oak barrels allows the wines to achieve the traditional character and elegance of the Rheinhessen region.
