The origin of the institute lies in a vineyard founded in 1842 by the brothers Nikolaus, Adolph Friedrich and Jakob Wilhelm Blankenhorn from Müllheim in Baden-Baden on today's Blankenhornsberg in Ihringen on the Kaiserstuhl (the winery that had been run for a long time in the family Blankenhorn was sold in 2014). The son of Adolph Friedrich, later president of the German winegrowing association Professor Adolph Blankenhorn (1843-1906) founded in 1872 an Oenological Institute in Karlsruhe and used the winery Kaiserstuhl as grape variety testing station. After the sale to the Baden Chamber of Agriculture in 1920, the present-day institute was founded in Freiburg. The first director was Dr. med. Karl miller (1881-1955) ordered.
Dr. John carpenter (1907-1998) joined the Badische Weinbauinstitut Freiburg in 1934 and was responsible for vine breeding and microbiology. He led the vine growing from 1937 to 1945 and worked there until 1972. He made groundbreaking work for the beginning of the 1990s, the introduction of PIWI varieties in viticulture. Also extensively active in this area was Dr. med. Norbert Becker (1937-2012), the longtime leader of the Resistance and Cloning Unit. From the year 1952 the institute was a research institute of the state of Baden-Württemberg. Since 1991, the teaching and experimental food on the Blankenhornsberg has been the focus of all viticultural experiments. In 1997 the state vineyard Freiburg and Blankenhornsberg was founded. Since 2011 it is now called State Wine Estate Freiburg,
