Wachtstetter - Living tradition
It all started with Karl and Ernst - with the French surname Combé. Karl is the great-grandfather and Ernst the grandfather of the present owner Rainer Wachtstetter. The family initially ran a classic mixed agricultural business. But in 1979 the course was set in a new direction. Grandfather Ernst, father Roland and mother Anni strove for their own qualities and so the first bottles were filled. From 1983 on, the company could call 3 hectares of vineyards its own.
And today Rainer Wachtsetter, the 3rd generation, takes care of the family business. The 3 hectares of vineyards have grown into about 20 hectares. What has not changed is the high quality standards of the Wachtstetter Winery.
