Badischer wine cellar

The large cooperative network or winery in the municipality Breisach (area Kaiserstuhl) in the growing area to bathe in Germany was founded in 1952 and was called at that time "Central Winery Badenischer Winzergenossenschaften". The responsible persons are Axel Hahn (board member Sales / Marketing) and Wilfried Dörr (board member Production / Oenology). The first own cellar plant from 1970 was replaced by a new building in 1982 on an open space on the periphery of Breisach. The new winery was built according to the most modern aspects and adapted again and again to the latest developments. The production capacity includes about 100 million liters of must and wine.

The Baden Winzerkeller are over 30 fully supplying Winzergenossenschaften connected, which deliver their entire grape yield for pressing. In addition, a contractually stipulated share is brought to Breisach from another 30 or so subcontracting cooperatives. In total, around 6,000 winemakers and winemaker families are affiliated through this cooperative network. These cultivate more than 2,500 hectares of vineyards in all nine Baden areas. Thus, the winery is one of the largest European cooperative wine farms. Principles are environmentally friendly viticulture and natural cellaring. Every year, 500 to 600 different wines, separated according to locations, varieties and quality levels are expanded. In addition to the pressing of the grapes and the expansion, the marketing of the wines is also taken over.
