Ahrweiler Winzer-Verein e.G.

Your Winegrowers’ Cooperative from Ahrweiler since 1874

The Romans already appreciated the Ahr as a wine-growing region, as this region is still considered Germany's "red wine paradise" today. Our historic cooperative with a family atmosphere was founded back in 1874. The main task of the cooperative was initially to market the wine. Winemaking was soon added so that the individual members of the cooperative could concentrate fully on winemaking. With around 78 members, the cooperative has developed into an important winegrowing business in the Ahr Valley.

Our cooperative is located in the heart of the romantic Ahr Valley. Here in Ahrweiler, the red wine metropolis with more than 1100 years of town history, we are only about 150 meters from the Obertor, the western part of the medieval town wall, very close to the Roman villa and the "government bunker".

The 85 percent red grapes that we process include grape varieties such as Pinot Noir, Frühburgunder, Portugieser and Dornfelder, while Müller-Thurgau, Riesling and other white grape varieties make up the remaining 15 percent. In addition to our wines, we also produce sparkling wine, fine distillates and grape juices.
