The "Karl and Thomas Seyffer Winery" is located in the municipality of Weinsberg in the German Württemberg wine region. The winegrowing tradition in the family goes back to the year 1650. Thomas Seyffer's grandfather left the cooperative in the late 1950s and from then on had the wine matured by a cooper in his own cellar. However, the estate was first named after his son Karl, who initiated a qualitative change after graduating from technical school at the end of the 1960s. Since 1995 the next generation, Thomas Seyffer, has been responsible for the cellar work, while the father continues to look after the vineyards. A broom farm is attached. The vineyards comprise seven hectares of vineyards in the Eberfürst (Eberstadt) and Ranzenberg (Weinsberg) locations. They are planted to 70% with the red wine varieties Trollinger, Muskat-Trollinger, Lemberger, Dornfelder, Spätburgunder and Samtrot, and 30% with the white wine varieties Riesling, Kerner, Traminer and Muskateller. The white wines are fermented cool and undergo biological acid reduction up to the Kabinett rating. The red wines are macerated and mature in old wooden barrels or barriques. Bottle-fermented sparkling wines are also produced.
