Weis Vineyards released its first vintages in May 2017 and wasted no time in establishing itself as one of the best wineries around by winning double-gold (and six other medals) at the 2017 New York Wine & Food Classic Competition , then following up with double-gold (and other awards) at the 2018 SF Chronicle Wine Judging Competition. Born in Zell Mosel, Germany, winemaker Hans Peter Weis crafts traditional, dry German-style wines for all to enjoy.
Special Note: Due to the quaint size of the 1870’s-era one-room schoolhouse tasting room, Weis requires all parties of 8 or more call ahead to make a reservation.
