< OVERVIEW / THE WINE COOPERATIVE
A large family
In 1924 around 200 Ihringer wine-growing families formed a cooperative due to economic hardship. Difficult years followed until an upswing began in 1936 with the construction of their own wine cellars. The winemaking cooperative suffered a serious setback when the wine press house and office building were completely destroyed in the Second World War. Yet the Ihringer wine-growers did not lose heart and rebuilt the cooperative bigger and better than before. The struggles of the first decades have more than paid off.
Today the Ihringer winemaking cooperative, with its 600 members and 300 hectares of vineyards, is among the most renowned in the Kaiserstuhl and in Baden. This is proven not least by numerous awards at national and international wine tastings.
