The winery in Haardt (suburb of Neustadt) in the German wine-growing region of Pfalz is located at the foot of the Haardt Mountains. It was founded in the 18th century by the Huguenot family Catoir, the oldest document referring to viticulture dates back to 1744. For almost a hundred years, the winery was run by women (great-grandmother, grandmother and mother of the current owner). Today, it is run in the ninth generation by Jakob Heinrich Catoir and his son Philipp David, with Martin Franzen as cellar master. The name Müller comes from a grandmother of the current owner. The vineyards cover 20 hectares of vines in the single vineyards Bürgergarten, Herrenletten, Herzog and Mandelring (Haardt), Grain and Mönchgarten (Neustadt an der Weinstraße), Eselshaut (Mußbach), Mandelgarten and Schlössel (Gimmeldingen), as well as Römerbrunnen (Hambach). Different soil types predominate, ranging from heavy clay to loess and loamy gravel. The dominant main variety is Riesling with about 60% of the area (12 ha), followed by Rieslaner, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris, Muscat and Scheurebe.
