Peter Mertes established his first winery in 1924 in the Minheim village in Mosel, Germany. His family had a history of grape-growing and supplying their fruit for other winemakers, but he wanted to take it a step further and produce the wines from grapes grown at his own vineyards. In the 1950s, his son-in-law, Dr. Gustav Willkomm, began producing wine in the Rhine and then Pfalz regions, thus expanding the business. In the 1960s, the portfolio grew to include wines from the Reingau and Nahe. Today, the Peter Mertes brand produces wine from all over Germany as well as other global locations, offering a wide range of styles.

  • Having trouble finding Peter Mertes wines in Georgia. Harvey's chain of groceries now carries his wines. I've found Rieslings, Sweet red/white, Kab and others. They are also very reasonable priced. Enjoy!

  • Peter Mertes Riesling 2007


    Peter Mertes Riesling is crisp and refreshing and with a low alcohol content at just 9% is very drinkable with food or by itself. Pale yellow with a hint of green this riesling has a nose with aromas of lime peel, peaches and light mineral notes. On the palate it has great fruit flavors such as white peach, grapefruit and pear with a medium finish. Read More
