The family business Weger was founded in 1820 by Mr. Josef Weger from 1782 to 1852, the great-grandfather of the current owner.
He was one of the pioneers in wine production and trade in South Tyrol.
His successful work was passed on to his son Josef Weger in 1809 – 1892, which continued to expand what his father had built until then.
His idea was to carry wine from the warehouses in Switzerland and also in the imperial countries of Austria and Hungary with his own carriages.

Subsequently in the 1920s, his nephew Johann Weger from 1890 to 1975 founded an entrepreneurial insolence in Lienz Tirol East as a subsidiary for the distribution of wholly owned family wines.

Johannes Weger. With the entry and the commitment of his son Dr. Johannes Weger, there are 6 generations that have been carrying on this business this year.
