The winery is located in the municipality of Großheppach (Remstal-Stuttgart area) in the German wine-growing region of Württemberg. The traditional family has been growing grapes here since 1514, i.e. for over 500 years. But the grapes have only been processed since 1975. At that time, the young viticultural technician Bernhard Ellwanger and his wife Ingrid started marketing the grapes themselves. Since 1985, the winery has been a training centre for budding winemakers, and now son Sven and daughter Yvonne are responsible for the winery after completing their studies in viticulture in Geisenheim and Heilbronn, respectively. After a practical stay in New Zealand, Sven Ellwanger has been responsible for the cellar technology since 1999.

The wein.plus encyclopaedia is a comprehensive, well-researched reference work. Available anytime and anywhere, it has become an indispensable part of teaching, used by students and myself alike. Highly recommended!
