Winegrowers' Association Hagnau at Lake Constance
Can winemaking monks and abbots be wrong? Probably not, and so for centuries the richest and largest monasteries from the entire pre-Alpine region in Hagnau owned vineyards and wine cellars. Even back then, people knew how to appreciate the Hagnau lake wine.
Today, 145 hectares of vineyards are cultivated, which in southern exposure extend to the shore of Lake Constance. 60 winegrowing families, who joined together as early as 1881 on the advice of their priest Heinrich Hansjakob to form the first winegrowers' cooperative in Baden, benefit from the sun-drenched vineyards, the mild lake climate and the grape varieties that appreciate the soil: Müller-Thurgau, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir, Pinot Noir Blauer, Kerner, Bacchus, Regent and St. Laurent.
