What convinced us to choose the cooperative “Weinbiet” in Mussbach, a district in the city of Neustadt on the Wine Route as our partner? It’s not just the use of modern technology, their know-how, passion & commitment in the vineyards and the cellar to produce top quality wines. We found the successful relationship among the vintners, the genial disposition, a great sense of humour very appealing.
This immediately made us feel part of the team.
80 vintners farm with great care and expertise on 320 hectares their vineyards in
the mild climate at the bottom of the Haardt Range of mountains which results
in 6 Million litres of wine a year.
With the start of the 2014 wine harvesting season the younger generation in “Weinbiet” has taken over. Bastian Klohr, the new manager, and Tobias Müller, the wine maker, both 29, and their team are going to continue “Weinbiet’s” legacy and develop their next profile. This is the generation of the blogs, the tweets.
It allows the exchange of ideas and share good practice, not just locally but
from all over the world.
These ‘youngsters’ studied viticulture, but hands on experience is important too. They have worked in several cellars and travelled through the old and new world of wine through Italy, France, Austria and across South Africa. They are ambitious to use their gained expertise to produce signature wines which reflect the terroir
and enhance the many skills of the cooperative.
We are looking forward to their selection of wines from Premium wine to
the Edition Philipp Bassler; “Weinbiets'” finest, where extra grape diligence during the growing season and yield control of 60 litre per hectare are the standard
to guarantee best quality.

Rich without being fat.”
