The association "Deutscher Prädikats Winzergenossenschaften" was founded in 1996. Today it represents 11 winegrowers' co-operatives with 5,624 members or winegrowing families who cultivate a total of 4,000 hectares of vineyards in the five growing regions of Baden, Franconia, Palatinate, Rheinhessen and Württemberg. The members are committed to quality management according to ISO-9000 standards and eco-audits and strive for environmentally friendly, organic viticulture. The motto is " In vino qualitas quinquies = In wine is fivefold quality". This means that quality is not the result of site classification, but is ennobled by soil,microclimate, vintage, grape variety and, above all, the art of the winemaker and cellar master. The Achkarren winegrowers' co-operative (Baden), for example, is a member.

The Wine lexicon helps me to keep up to date and refresh my knowledge. Thank you for this Lexicon that will never end in terms of topicality! That's what makes it so exciting to come back often.
