The large cooperative or winery in the municipality of Breisach (Kaiserstuhl area) in the growing area to bathe in Germany was founded in 1952 and at that time was called the "Central Cellar of Baden Wine Cooperatives". The people responsible are Axel Hahn (Board Member for Sales / Marketing) and Wilfried Dörr (Board Member for Production / Oenology). The first own winery 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 criteria and always adapted to the latest developments. The production capacity includes around 100 million liters of must and wine.
The Baden wine cellar has over 30 fully delivering Winzergenossenschaften connected who deliver their entire grape yield for pressing. In addition, a contractually stipulated share is brought to Breisach by another 30 or so part-delivering cooperatives. A total of around 6,000 winegrowers and winegrower families are connected through this cooperative network. These cultivate over 2,500 hectares of vineyards in all nine Baden areas. This makes the winery one of the largest European cooperative winegrowers. The principles are environmentally friendly viticulture and natural cellar management. 500 to 600 different wines are developed annually, separated according to locations, types and quality levels. In addition to the pressing of the grapes and the expansion, the marketing of the wines is also taken over.
