“Born in Zell Mosel, Germany, Winemaker Hans Peter Weis grew up in the vineyards and cellar of his family winery. It is there that he gained his passion for wine. Continually learning and working with his family to learn the techniques and tradition of the Mosel. Once he was of age he furthered his education by receiving his degree in Winemaking, Business & Agriculture.

In the spring of 2016 he and his wife Ashlee, a native of the Finger Lakes, decided they would begin this adventure together and open up Weis Vineyards.
