Weingut Anton Zimmermann
The Zimmermann family has nurtured its winery for four generations.
Weingut Zimmermann is run by current generation Josef Zimmermann, whose father Anton (from whom it takes its name) has now retired. Josef is extremely hands-on, managing all aspects of the operation and making the wine.
Zimmerman wines are excellent and offer superb value for money. Wines are available in a variety of styles from Trocken, through Halbtrocken and Auslese through to a selection of dessert wines including some old Beerenauselese. The highlight of the range is an outstanding Eiswein.
Zimmermann's vineyards are predominantly on the Kues side of the river while the Kardinalsberg rises on the plateau above Kues. Weisenstein lies to the west of Kues where it rises from the banks of the river and Rosenberg.
The original building was situated in the heart of the old part of Kues, but twenty-five years ago the Zimmermann family moved their operations to a central yet peaceful area in new Kues, in a building which formerly housed a wine research center.
If you visit the Mosel, Josef's excellent Ferienwohnungen located above the winey make an excellent base.
