Inseparable since way back

It was not the Romans who brougth the wine to Baden – it has been there since ever. During most recent excavations fossil vines have been found which are an estimated 60 million years of age. If you are lucky, you can find the last ones of these venerable wild vines in the riparian forests along the Upper Rhine. However, it took ages until the precious grapes yielded wine for the first time.

Now learn more about the fascinating history of viticulture! The first wine was made between 5000 to 3000 B. C. by Indogermanic tribes in river valleys in the Middle East. About 1000 years later, the Phoenicians brought viticulture to Greece, and wine developed from a legendary elixir to a delightful national beverage. In western Europe, viticulture started as late as in 600 B. C., when the port of Marseilles (France) was founded and the Greeks started to graft the existing vines.

In western Europe, viticulture started as late as in 600 B. C., when the port of Marseilles (France) was founded and the Greeks started to graft the existing vines. Around 50 B. C., the Romans brought their knowledge about viticulture from Gaul (France) to Germania. From about 100 A. D., Germans who lived in what today is Baden independently cultivated the delightful beverage on the left bank of the Rhine in what today is Alsace (France). Even though Baden and wine have been connected since way back, the actual history of viticulture started as late as then.

After several ups and downs, viticulture in Germany experienced a new peak in the year 1700. The cloisters still existing as well as the mediatized princes enacted regulations for the production of top quality wine, which Baden greatly benefited from. One of the territorial princes rendered outstanding services to the region of Baden: Karl Friedrich von Baden (1728-1811). If it weren’t for him, agriculture and viticulture would never have become as important as they are today. Thanks to his decree, the best sorts of grapes were planted on the southern slopes of the Kaiserstuhl. So he together with many committed vintners in Baden contributed for Baden’s becoming one of the most famous and best wine growing areas in the world.
