Our Winemakers & Distilleries
Our Partner of the Bodenseehotels
Dear guest, here you will find a list of our partner winegrowers and distilleries in alphabetical order where you can find the best wines of the region!
The Aufricht family winery is located in the middle of the Meersburg landscape conservation area, in the southernmost wine-growing region of Germany. The vineyards reach all the way to the shores of Lake Constance and benefit from the optimal climatic conditions as much as from the Aufricht family’s instinctive touch. The landscape around Meersburg, captivates with its richness of variety and reveals every day a wide spectrum of colors with a view over the vineyards down to the lake.
The sales room in the winery invites you to linger. The modern glass extension, combined with local wood, is perfectly integrated into the surroundings and offers a great view over the vineyards and the lake to the Swiss mountains. Standing on the terrace with a glass of wine in hand at Aufrichts and enjoying the view, you get an idea of the overall concept that the family lives by and that fully succeeds. And as the now deceased Josef Aufricht, founder of the winery, said, “What you want, you can do better.” This is also shown by the occupation of first place in the German Red Wine Award 2016, which has been awarded for 30 years by the trade magazine VINUM. Aufricht’s delight at this award is all the greater because it is the first time since the prize was awarded that a Pinot Noir from Lake Constance has taken first place in the supreme discipline.
Winemakers’ Association Hagnau
The sun shines and wraps the landscape in a golden garment. The lake sparkles and reflects its rays onto the gently sloping vineyards. This is where the 52 winegrowing families of the Hagnau Winegrowers’ Association are allowed to nurture and care for their vines on 166 hectares of vineyards. As early as 1881, Pastor Dr. Heinrich Hansjakob recognized the needs of the winegrowers and swore them to the community spirit as the oldest winegrowers’ cooperative in Baden.
From this treasure trove of nature, cellarmaster Jochen Sahler succeeds year after year in creating elegant white wines, racy rosé and red wines and sparkling sparkling wine variants. The wines of the Winzerverein Hagnau, which have won prizes at many wine competitions at home and abroad, not only symbolize one of the most beautiful landscapes in Germany, but also embody a bottled attitude to life.
Would you like to feel this attitude towards life? Why not take a vacation with our winegrowers. Here you will find a large selection of different accommodations, vacation apartments, hotels or private rooms in Hagnau and the surrounding area.
