Walter S. Siegel established his eponymous firm in 1887 in Wiesbaden in central western Germany, largely to sell his own wines from vineyards in Germany. His son Hans formed Walter S. Siegel Ltd in 1937, in London with England's Test cricketer Ian Peebles. This went into cold storage during WW2, but resumed following the end of the war. With a deference to the Siegel name, Walt wines are easy-drinking and fruit-driven. The Riesling and Pinot Noir grapes are sourced from the Pfalz region in western Germany, between the Rhine River and the Haardt mountain range, where the climate is much like Alsace; this is one of the warmest, sunniest and driest of the German wine regions. These vibrant little numbers with their eye-catching contemporary labels are unbeatable value!
