Pfeffingen is a historic, 300 year old estate located in the Pfalz region of Germany. Known for its pioneering work with the Scheurebe grape, this winery produces one of the country’s absolute top examples of this super unique aromatic variety.
The few homes that make up Pfeffingen were a starting point for settling the surrounding area circa 6th century. In 1622 Emperor Ferdinand II bestowed the family crest to the Schnell family, ancestors of the Fuhrmanns and Eymaels. The unicorn taken from the family crest is today prominently featured on the estate’s label.
In 1916 the grape-breeder Georg Scheu, produced an impressive new variety by crossing Riesling and another (unknown) grape. It became known as Scheurebe. The pronounced aroma is typically reminiscent of blackcurrant (cassis), occasionally also of tropical fruits such as maracuja or mango. The noble sweet styles stand out for their long cellaring potential and great finesse. The different styles and quality levels make Scheurebe wines a versatile choice for many occasions. The wines made from Scheurebe are full-bodied, have pronounced acidity.
