About us

Harry, after coming to Höhnstedt over 25 years ago, made the decision to make, drink and share his own wine with his customers.

If you buy our wine or are interested in a wine tasting, you will definitely meet Ulrike.

Marie is the daughter of the house, who now makes her own wines.

From 1991 to 1998 we bought our first vineyards and raised our wines on them. At the same time we built up the winery as a sideline, at that time still in Wanslebener Straße in Höhnstedt.In 1998 we bought the grist mill in Höhnstedt at an auction and started its development.

In the year 2000 we registered the winery Weingut Hoffmann Alte Schrotmühle as our main business.

Since 2000 we have opened the Alte Schrotmühle for wine sales, tastings, concerts, exhibitions, farm festivals and family celebrations.

By 2010 we have expanded our wine cellar and carried out other excitements. Worth mentioning is the cultivation suitability for Merlot in the Saale-Unstrut growing area.

In the current decade we have renewed our machinery. This includes the purchase of machines for sparkling wine production in our own house. You are welcome to try our sparkling wine.
