The "Weingut Pfeffingen - Fuhrmann Eymael" in the municipality of Bad Dürkheim-Pfeffingen is located in the German wine-growing region of the Palatinate
. The Schnell family had been growing wine in the Palatinate since the middle of the 17th century. In 1931 the Pfeffingen estate was acquired by Valentin Schnell. His son-in-law Karl Fuhrmann took over the business in 1952 and subsequently converted the formerly mixed agricultural operation completely to viticulture. His daughter Doris Eymael, one of the few women at the head of a German winery, has shared the management of the estate with her son Jan since 2002. The vineyards comprise 12 hectares of vineyards in the Ungsteiner sites Herrenberg
. They are planted with the white wine varieties Riesling (50%), Scheurebe, Gewürztraminer, Pinot Blanc, Silvaner, Auxerrois and Chardonnay, as well as the red wine varieties Pinot Noir and Cabernet Dorsa. A speciality of the house are dry to noble sweet wines from the Scheurebe. About one third of the production is exported. The winery is a member of the VDP
(Verband deutscher Prädikatsweingüter).
