The Winzergenossenschaft (winegrowers' cooperative) Jechtingen-Amoltern is located at the western Kaiserstuhl, not far from the Rhine in the warm south of the beautiful Baden.
340, 130, 240 - Winemakers, families, hectares
30 Jechtingen winegrowers founded the winery in 1924 and initially stored the wines in their private cellars. A few decades later, in 1962, a new winery was built at the end of Jechtingen. Here the work could be better coordinated and the estate was constantly expanded and also modernized. Another milestone in the history of the winegrowers' cooperative came in 2011, when it merged with the Winegrowers' Cooperative Amoltern. Hence the name Jechtingen-Amoltern am Kaisterstuhl e.G. Since then, a total of 340 winegrowers from 130 winegrowing families have been cultivating more than 240 hectares of vineyards.
Presented with an exceptional grape variety
The trademark of the Jechtingen-Amoltern winegrowers' cooperative is the over 700-year-old castle "Burg Sponeck" with its romantic face. It was here in 1939 that the original vine "Sponeck 21" was rediscovered. In the meantime, it was considered extinct, but even after its destruction in the Second World War, some vine grapevines could still be discovered and saved. Today, the "Sponeck 21" grape variety is cultivated in the vineyard directly next to the castle.
Full body thanks to volcano, loess and clay
All the vines of the Jechtingen-Amoltern winegrowers' cooperative grow on sun-drenched terraces and vineyards that nestle against the volcanic slopes. The warm Baden climate and the volcanic soils with their fertile loess and loam layers provide for wines with excellent body and Mediterranean temperament. Every year, no less than two million liters of red and white top wines are grown in this way.
