Derived from German weingärtner meaning "wine maker, vintner", which itself is derived from German weingarten meaning "vineyard". The latter is a composite word consisting of German wein "wine" combined with German garten "garden". A known bearer of this surname was Felix Weingartner (1863-1942), an Austrian conductor, composer and pianist.
