Dr. Peter Pauly is the grandchild of Zacharias Bergweiler, historically one of the most esteemed Moselle winemakers. Already during his early studies at Geisenheim, the only German institution to award higher academic degrees in winemaking, Dr. Peter Pauly worked on the family wine estate before completely taking over the winery in the year 1959.
In the year 2006, Dr. Peter Pauly transferred the operation of the wine estate to his son, Stefan Pauly. Stefan now not only carries forward the work of his father, but he also has achieved significant new success on the international wine market.
Dr. Heidemanns-Bergweiler is one of the most renown wine producers in the Middle Mosel area. It is engaged exclusively in the production of estate wines and has established a reputation for offering only the highest quality Riesling wines. Their ancestors, the Bergweilers and Pruems from Wehlen, began winegrowing in the early 16th century. At the end of the last century the estate was expanded by the grandfather, Zacharias Bergweiler, a greatly esteemed man in the area. Today the estate is managed by his grandson, Dr. Peter Pauly.
