Newcomer of the Year in 2006 and for eight of the last 11 years the estate produced Germany's top Pinot Noir as chosen by Gault-Millau. For many years now, the Becker estate located in Schweigen, very far south of the Pfalz on the border of Alsace, has been one of the top Pinot Noir producers in Germany. In 1973 when Fritz Sr. took over the estate from his father, he was one of the first that independently started using barriques for his Pinots. In 2005 Fritz Jr. took over the winemaking at the estate. Almost 70% of their vineyards are located in Alsace.
