Acham-Magin

The estate is located in the commune (Mittelhaardt-Deutsche Weinstraße area) in the German wine-growing region palatinate, The foundation stone was laid in 1711 by Heinrich Wilhelm Reichardt, who a year later founded the former inn "Zum Engel" today "Gutschausschank Acham-Magin". His descendants significantly expanded the vineyards by marrying in Forster families, including the Magin family. Emil Magin was a co-founder of the "Association of Natural Wine Auctioneers of the Palatinate" in 1908, today VDP-Palatinate. His son Kurt Magin married the winegrower daughter Anna Elisabeth Hebinger from Deidesheim in 1934. After the early death of her husband, Anna Magin led the winery through the turmoil of war with her father and married Anton Acham in 1947. The daughter Anna-Barbara Acham has been running the business with Vinzenz Trösch since 1994.

The vineyards cover eight hectares of vineyards in the renowned individual locations Kirchenstück.
