At the beginning of the 17th century, the Sauerweins were first mentioned in documents on the upper Moselle. At that time, they came from Natters in South Tyrol.

In the course of the generations, they always cultivated some wine, together with agriculture and additional work on the railways, handicrafts or administration. Matthias Sauerwein, Erwin Sauerwein's grandfather, was mayor of Palzem after 1945. He also founded the current company headquarters in 1924, now a large building surrounded by vineyards.

Edith and Erwin Sauerwein laid the foundation for today's winery, with their children Matthias, Tobias, Timo and Andreas. After Erwin's untimely death in 2016, their sons Matthias and Timo continue to run the winery.

From 2003 to 2018, the business ran under the name Weingut Sonenbuerg. Since 2019, we have returned to our family name, which is somewhat unconventional for winegrowers. Because we are the Sauerweins.

Matthias and Timo, who grew up on the winery, both studied viticulture and oenology in Geisenheim. After gaining experience in renowned wineries in Germany, France, Austria and New Zealand, they now run the winery with fresh ideas.

On almost 20 km of the Mosel, from Nennig to Rehlingen, we plant white and red grape varieties, including more than 20% of Elbling, the oldest German vine. True to our motto "Pure Variety", there are now 20 different grape varieties (Auxerrois, Cabernet Cortis, Chardonnay, Dornfelder, Dunkelfelder, Elbling, Gewürztraminer, Pinot Gris, Kerner, Ortega, Regent, Riesling, Rivaner, Roter Riesling, Sankt Laurent, Schwarzriesling, Solaris, Pinot Noir, Syrah and Pinot Blanc).

The diversity of grape varieties reflects the diversity of our region. Our soils in Palzem near the Moselle consist of shell limestone. They are foothills of the Paris Basin. They warm up quickly, are permeable and particularly well suited for Elbling and the Pinot varieties. Unusual for the Moselle is the high proportion of red wine.
