Fischer and Wieser
In 1928, Joseph and Estella Wieser bought 60 acres of land on the southern edge of Fredericksburg, Texas, planted a peach orchard and put down roots in a very Texan way: think big, work hard and never compromise. Nestled in the beautiful Texas Hill Country, that dedicated commitment has fortified a family business for four decades, with son Mark Wieser carrying on his parents’ passion for gourmet eating the way nature intended. In 1969, Mark founded Fischer & Wieser’s Das Peach Haus® as a roadside fruit stand, built from the logs of an 1870 German log cabin purchased for $150 (especially meaningful given the family’s German heritage), and quickly became the place to go for the best locally harvested preserves and sauces Texas has to offer.
Fast forward a decade and out in the verdant peach orchard, one of Mark Wieser’s students, Case Fischer, was harvesting summer peaches and growing a passion for the process of farming and preserving. Case developed such a love for the business that he went on to study Food Technology and Food & Fiber Marketing at Texas A&M University and returned home to become Mark’s business partner, full of vision, knowledge, and new strategies to grow the business and inspire culinary adventures everywhere. Case later developed The Original Roasted Raspberry Chipotle Sauce®, the company’s flagship product, winning the NASFT’s (National Association for the Specialty Food Trade) prestigious award for Outstanding New Best Seller in 1997. Today Mark Wieser is Chairman of the Board and Case Fischer is President and CEO of this thriving international business and the #1 gourmet food company in Texas. And it all started here in our Hill Country peach orchard.
