Four decades of cumulative experience as a wine expert and cellar master not only reveal themselves in conversation with Bernhard Siegel from the Palatinate, but above all in his wines.
A Palatinate native, down-to-earth and passionate, with firm ties to the region and its special features such as the wine by the glass culture. Bernhard knows the sites and closely follows the changes in soil and vines resulting from the new climatic conditions. He adapts and uses his knowledge down to the finest detail to influence the development of his grapes – the result is honest wines that are a pleasure to drink.
His new job is taking the trained viticulture expert beyond the borders of the Palatinate region.
As a winegrowing expert and oenologist, Bernhard has been responsible for goose.wine, the new umbrella brand for the wine business at ncdh Group AG, since the beginning of 2023.
Bernhard is happy to share his many years of experience with regional winemakers in Germany and Europe, who then put it into practice on site and support each other. The knowledge of many in terms of the desired result – to produce first-class wines for the international market.
SIMPLY FIRST CLASS
In addition, Bernhard makes wines under his name that suit his philosophy best. “Wines that are simply fun to drink” is the conviction behind everything Bernhard Siegel does. Nothing big-headed, but wines that go with the wine by the glass culture.
Bernhard Siegel has put his heart and soul into being a cellar master for more than 30 years. During his career running wine cellars, he developed Burgundy and Riesling wines using down-to-earth craftsmanship and a love of innovation. He let deep red wines full of character mature in traditional oak barrels or in tonneaux or barrique.
His successful work has been recognised by 11 state awards from the Rhineland-Palatinate Chamber of Agriculture and various awards from the German Agricultural Society among the TOP 50 wineries in Germany.
Bernhard Siegel and goose.wine have a lot in common: not only their passion for wines grown and made by working in harmony with nature and not against it. But also the practised value of transferring knowledge between generations to equally benefit from tradition and innovation, and the ever-increasing focus on sustainability, whose importance is constantly growing in wine culture.
As a B2B partner, goose.wine exports wines from Europe to the whole world.
Valuable human experiences and sound professional knowledge, a perfect combination that now benefits the various goose.wine wineries and which the company is grateful for.
The goals are clear: improved quality, sustainability and biodiversity at the individual wineries. “Pure pleasure” is the slogan that best describes the philosophy of goose.wine: regional, authentic wines that are not only produced sustainably, but above all by people who do their job with passion and sound knowledge.
