Weingut Weegmüller has over 300 years of winemaking history. The eleventh generation of Weegmüller family, sisters Stefanie and Gabrielle excelled in making delicious wines from the Palatinate region for over 30 years. In 2021, Philipp Steegmüller took over the reins, born and bred in the Palatinate region, as a lover of fine wine and food; he is joined by cellar master Gregor Hofer, to continue the Weingut Weegmüller story. The vineyards are farmed organically and the yields are restricted to gain concentration and weight, resulting in wines that are wonderfully rich and food friendly.
The grapes are produced in the outstanding vineyard sites of the Mittelhaardt. Almost 90% of Weingut Weegmuller’s vineyards are located in the top classified region of Haardt. This district takes its name from the low-lying Haardt Mountains, which play a vital role in the terroir here. The grapes for this wine come from a vineyard which is situated on one third Haardt soil and two thirds Neustadt soil. The soils are made up of sand and clay over deep slate, which helps to impart a touch of minerality to the wine. The name of the wine Mandelring, is thought to come from the German word Mandel, meaning almonds, as there may have been almond trees originally planted on the site. The vineyards are cultivated as naturally as possible.
