The "Königschaffhausen am Kaiserstuhl eG wine cooperative" in the German wine-growing region to bathe
was founded in 1933 and today consists of 370 member winemakers. The cellar master is Reiner Roßwog. The vineyards encompass a total of 204 hectares of vines with the individual layers of stone pits on volcanic weathering rock with thin loess layer (only Pinot Noir) and Hasenberg on deep loess soils mixed with little volcanic weathering rock (only white wine varieties). They are planted with the varieties Pinot Noir (85 ha), Müller-Thurgau (42 ha), Pinot Gris (45 ha), Pinot Blanc (15 ha), Gewürztraminer, Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon. The proportion of Burgundy varieties is over 70%. The premium wines of the Selections and Barrique line are stored and expanded from the grapes from the older vines over 25 years. These vineyard parcels are maintained, processed and harvested using monitored yield reductions under the strict guidelines of the quality manager.
The white wines ferment and mature in stainless steel tanks. The red wines are fermented using classic mash fermentation lasting several days and are optimally ripened for many months in large German oak barrels, and sometimes also in barriques. The figurehead of red and barrique wines is the "Regnum", the best Pinot Noir of the year. Since 1962 have been in almost continuous succession Eiswein
made from Pinot Noir and Gewürztraminer and in the last few years also made from Pinot Blanc and Cabernet Sauvignon. Bottle-fermented sparkling wines and sparkling wines are also produced. The wine cooperative
is a member of German barrique forum
