Vigneron

French name for winegrower (also viticulteur); look there.

The German name Winzer is derived from the Latin word "Vinitor" (from Vinum = wine) and means analogously "Weinleser" (grape reader). This suggests that formerly only the activity of grape cultivation was understood. Today, this is not a clear job description in German-speaking countries, but rather a general, colloquial collective term for the group of winegrowers, regardless of the scope of the activity, from the pure grape supplier to the wine producer (cellar master). As a rule, however, only one wine production company is considered winery designated.
