Weingut Weegmüller wine producer
Originally from Zurich, the
clan moved to the Pfalz from Switzerland in 1657 and began producing wine in 1685. They’re the oldest producer in the Pfalz, and are still family-owned and run. 11th-generation Stefanie Weegmüller-Scherr is owner and winemaker, while her sister Gabrielle Weegmüller handles marketing and exports.
Wine in Germany is curiously male-dominated; when Steffi took over the family business 25 years ago, she was the only female winemaker in the region. Her success has been instrumental in changing attitudes and persuading other women to try their hands at the profession.
The winery and its 14 hectares of prime vineyards are situated in the village of Haardt near Neustadt, at the southern end of the Mittelhaardt sub-zone that is acknowledged as the best part of the Pfalz. They produce a range of Rieslings, both dry and sweet, along with whites from Pinot Gris, Scheurebe, Gewürztraminer, Sylvaner and Rieslaner. A recent experiment with the Austrian grape Grüner Veltliner is also yielding exciting results.
