The family is the centre point. This has been the maxim of the Steffen family for many generations. When Johann Steffen starting winegrowing in 1794 in Trittenheim, it was only posisble with the help of his family. The first bottled wines around 1910 showed promising results. Decades later, in 1945, when the company needed building up again, the brothers Johann and Peter Steffen remembered the maxim and laid the foundation stone for the family company Gebrüder Steffen, which is still going strong today.
