Wolf-Dietrich Salwey had already bought his own winegrowing business at the age of 23, namely the Rinzberghof in the Glottertal north of Freiburg, which is still managed today. Finally, in 1985 he took over the main responsibility of his parents' business in Oberrotweil. The winery is now run by the third generation of Konrad Salwey since his father, Wolf-Dietrich, died in January 2011.
