The estate of Katharina Wechsler is located in the historic centre of Westhofen (Rhineland-Palatinate) at the market place. Her family farmed 17 acres of vineyards in locations such as Kirchspiel, Morstein and the smallest single ply of Westhofen “Benn” whose distinctive feature is that it is completely family-owned.
Katharina belongs to the younger generation of winemakers in Germany with the production of only four vintages. The estate had no successor and threatened to phase out, as Katharina aborted her tents in Berlin, and knocked at the door again in Westhofen. She learned quickly and professionally how to make wine, and completed her first bottles of wine in 2010. Her philosophy is to produce authentic and characterful wines in which elegance and finesse stand in the foreground. The grape varieties are, inter alia, Riesling, Silvaner and Scheurebe.
