Weingut Graf von Weyher at London Newspaper

Weingut Graf von Weyher is located four kilometers southwest of Edenkoben, nestled between the Palatinate Forest Biosphere Reserve and the Rhine. A peaceful spot without a doubt: sun-drenched and with a spectacular view over the expanse of the plain to the Black Forest. But above all, a place that wine lovers should remember. The company has been family-owned for generations and has attracted attention in recent years since the sons of Otmar, Peter and Jürgen has joined the winery. The winery has been receiving awards from different international competitions.

Because of the vineyard’s locations with their heavy, mineral-rich soils in combination with the mild climate and the high number of hours of sunshine, offering the best conditions for growing red and white wines. The grapes are harvested almost exclusively by hand, and the grapes are carefully processed in the cellar: the individual vinification process gives each wine its own character, and some of the red and white wines are also skillfully grown in Matured Barriques. This creates drops for every occasion and for every palate – from light, uncomplicated drinking fun to a fully aromatic, intensely complex taste experience.

Recently, the company has joined London Awards 2020 and has received Gold Awards and Silver Awards for the wines below:
