The winery is located in the romantic town of Meersburg (Lake Constance area) above the harbour in the German wine-growing region of Baden. The historic buildings and the vineyards originate from the former property of the Prince-Bishops of Constance. In 1802/1803, the winery first became the "Grand Ducal Domain Winery" as a result of Napoleonic secularisation, then in 1919 the "State Winegrowing Domain" and finally, after the Second World War (1939-1945), the "Meersburg State Winery". It is run as a commercial enterprise of the state of Baden-Württemberg. Wine sales, the wine cellar, the estate administration and the estate pub are located in the former riding stables of the castle complex. From there you have a view over Lake Constance to the Alps. Dr Jürgen Dietrich is the estate director and Johannes Brückner is the first cellar master.
