Babo August-Wilhelm

Portait August-Wilhelm Freiherr von Babo The Kurpfalz-Bavarian court official Johann Lambert Gregory Reichsfreiherr of Babo (1725-1799) was a city clerk in Mannheim and Weinheim in Baden-Württemberg. He was the founder of the family of the barons of Babo, which produced several important wine-growing professionals.

His son Lambert Joseph Leopold von Babo (1790-1862) began to study law, but soon switched to agriculture and settled down as a landowner in Weinheim. In 1832 he founded the Pomologist Johann Butcher (1789-1852) the agricultural club garden. Here mainly seeds were bred and tested. He wrote as an agronomist and oenologist some important works such as "The Wine and table grapes the German vineyards and gardens "(1836 with butcher)," the vine and its varieties "(1844) with the varieties of the time, as well as "The main principles of the agriculture" (1851).
