"We live wine."


The Pfeffingen winery

We run the Pfeffingen winery with a lot of heart and passion. Family is very important to us. Because only together can you achieve excellence. Three generations live and work on the estate in Pfeffingen, a small hamlet between Bad Dürkheim and Ungstein directly on the German Wine Route. In the heart of the Palatinate. Producing characterful, individual wines from 17 hectares of the best vineyards is what drives us. Wines where you can taste where they were grown. Wines that promise drinking pleasure and joy. The numerous positive reviews and the membership in the VDP. The predicate wineries confirm our actions. But even more important to us is the daily conversation with our customers. We specialize in fruity, mineral Rieslings, elegant Burgundies and colour-intensive, powerful red wines. Our aromatic Scheureben are particularly popular and are a real temptation both dry and sweet. Let yourself be inspired and get to know the secrets of Pfeffinger wines.

Team Pfeffingen

Die Erzeugung von Wein ist keine Einzelleistung, es ist das Ergebnis gemeinsamer handwerklicher Arbeit. Herausragende Weine können nur entstehen, wenn das gesamte Team des Weingutes harmonisch zusammenarbeitet. Jeder ist ein Teil des Prozesses, sei es seine Arbeit in unseren Weinbergen um das Weingut in Bad Dürkheim, im Keller oder in der Vinothek. Es braucht ein gutes Team, um einzigartige Weine zu erzeugen.


The makers of the Pfeffingen wines


Winemaking tradition in the family

As early as 1622 the family was given todays family coat of arms with the legendary unicorn by the then emperor. Descendants of the family moved to the Palatinate, where they have been growing wine for around 250 years. On April 21, 1931, the Pfeffinger property was acquired. In 1952, Karl Fuhrmann and his wife Helene took over his father-in-laws winery and led it to the top of the Palatinate wine-growing business. Daughter Doris Eymael (née Fuhrmann) has managed the traditional family winery since 1991 and her son Jan since 2002.

History of Pfeffingen

Pfeffingen can be traced back to an Alemannic origin due to its word stem "ingen". It was a joint foundation by the Pfeffo clan, called Pfeffinger. Founded between 500 and 600 AD as a primitive settlement, Pfeffingen was the starting point for the settlement of the area. This also explains the immense importance that came to this settlement in the period that followed. Pfeffingen was not only the legal (place of justice, prison) and ecclesiastical center (mother church of St. Peter with three branch chapels and cemetery), but also the center of economic activity.
