Dr. Peter Pauly is the grandchild of Zacharias Bergweiler, historically one of the most esteemed Moselle winemakers. Already during his early studies at Geisenheim, the only German institution to award higher academic degrees in winemaking, Dr. Peter Pauly worked on the family wine estate before completely taking over the winery in the year 1959.
In the year 2006, Dr. Peter Pauly transferred the operation of the wine estate to his son, Stefan Pauly. Stefan now not only carries forward the work of his father, but he also has achieved significant new success on the international wine market.
The estate of Peter Nicolay has its origin at the beginning of the 19 th century in the old post-house and adjoining in "Zur Post" in Uerzig/Mosel. The fame and renown of this inn spread throughout the whole of Germany due to the great passion of the buxom wife of Peter Nicolay (1820-1896) for her profession, for excellent cuisine and for her wine cellar.
