The history of the famous family is inseparably connected with the history of German quality winegrowing. The ancestors were outstanding winegrowers, art connoisseurs, wine experts and actively involved in political life as mayors, members of parliament and as authors of wine books. The origin is the Ketschauerhof, which was already mentioned in 1250. In 1783, Johann Peter Jordan (whose father had immigrated from Savoy in 1708) built an estate with a winery in Deidesheim north of Neustadt an der Weinstraße which has remained the center of attention to this day. Andreas Jordan (1775-1848) is considered the founder of the winery and also of quality viticulture in the Palatinate. He bought the Ketschauerhof together with some of the best sites. A letter from this time has been preserved, in which J. W. von Goethe (1749-1832) ordered the 1811er, which he often praised, also known as comet wine, from the Bassermann Winery for a stay at a health resort in 1820.

Bassermann-Jordan - Ahnenreihe mit 6 Personen

Andreas Jordan attached great importance to the planting of only high-quality grape varieties, especially Riesling and (compared to the mixed set at that time) careful separation of the plants. Worth mentioning are above all the extensive improvements to the vineyards, in that northern slopes with large earth movements were turned into southern slopes, southern slopes were artificially raised and many sites were drained. He was followed by his son Ludwig Andreas Jordan (1811-1883), who continued the tradition and caused a sensation with his 1852 wines selected in five varieties. His successor was his son-in-law Emil Bassermann-Jordan (1835-1915).

His brother Otto was a friend and publisher of Wilhelm Busch (1832-1912), who wrote to him: "The Deidesheim wine is a real refreshment - but - only 17 bottles left. I think that you can get me, your noblesse, a batch for a fee, without any damage. Only soon - God willing - I will come in autumn and look forward to it". This was followed by Ludwig (1869-1914) and Dr. jur. Friedrich von Bassermann-Jordan (1872-1959), who together ran the estate. In 1907, the latter published his book "The history of viticulture" in three volumes, which is still considered a standard work today. The second extended edition followed in 1923.

Subsequently, he published innumerable other wine historical works, became an internationally recognized authority as a viticultural historian, exerted a decisive influence on the entire German viticulture for decades and received numerous honors and titles, for example President of the Bavarian and Vice President of the German Viticultural Association(DWV). Friedrich von Bassermann-Jordan also had a decisive influence on the first German wine law. On the occasion of his 85th birthday, the DLG (German Agricultural Society) donated the "Friedrich v. Bassermann-Jordan Medal", which may be awarded to a maximum of ten living personalities who have rendered "outstanding services to the German wine industry".

His son Ludwig von Bassermann-Jordan (1924-1995) managed the winery from 1959 onwards and particularly promoted the training of viticultural specialists. After his death his widow Margrit von Bassermann-Jordan (*1940) took over the management. In 2002 the winery was sold to the Neustadt entrepreneur Achim Niederberger. After his death in 2013, the business will be managed by Jana Niederberger together with Ulrich Mell (technical director since 1997) and Gunther Hauck (commercial director since 1998). Today, the winery comprises 50 hectares of vineyards in the individual locations Grainhübel, Herrgottsacker, Hohenmorgen, Kalkofen, Kieselberg, Langenmorgen, Leinhöhle, Mäushöhle, Paradiesgarten (Deidesheim), Hoheburg, Reiterpfad, Spieß (Ruppertsberg), as well as Freundstück, Jesuit garden, Kirchenstück, Pechstein, Stift, Ungeheuer (Forst).

They are planted with the white wine varieties Riesling (90%), Chardonnay, White Burgundy(Pinot Blanc) and Grey Burgundy(Pinot Gris), as well as the red wine varietiesPinot Noir and Merlot. The cellar of the winery has a special position, because over the centuries a wine museum with countless, most valuable artifacts has been created here. It contains Roman amphorae from the 1st to 3rd centuries, tin bottles from the time of the Thirty Years' War, a 1706 wine, one of the legendary 1811 Forster Monsters and all vintages since the 1880s. The wines of the private collection are not for sale.
