The History of King’s Court Estate Winery
According to family legend, in the year 1723, Kaiser Wilhelm, a German king, visited the town of Heddesheim, Germany and demanded his dues be paid by local peasants by giving up a portion of their food and wine harvest. He was served wine from a local vintner, Jakob Zimmermann, our great-great-great-grandfather and was so impressed by the quality and flavour that he immediately ordered a barrel to be sent to his residence. The king then appointed Jakob and his vineyard to become the official winery for the monarchy, hence the name “Königswingert,” which translates to “King’s Vineyard”.
