About Weingut Messmer :
"Weingut Messmer, in the Pfalz region, was founded by Herbert and Elizabeth Messmer in 1960. It’s situated in Burrweiler, in the southwest of Germany, less than 50 miles from the border with France and to the northwest of Stuttgart. The yellow sandstone buildings had already been home to winemaking for around 250 years before they arrived.
It’s still in the family’s hands today, with son Martin overseeing the estate alongside his brother Gregor, who supervises production in the vineyard and winery. Their vineyards cover 27 hectares, with around two-thirds of the area planted with white varieties (predominantly Riesling, Pinot Gris and Pinot Blanc) and the rest with red varieties (Pinot Noir in the main)."
