The "Wachtenburg Winzer eG", based in the municipality of Wachenheim (Mittelhaardt-Deutsche Weinstraße area) in the German wine-growing region of Palatinate, was founded in 1900 by 53 Palatinate winegrowers as a winegrowers' cooperative. The castle, which gives the cooperative its name and is the landmark of the municipality, is emblazoned on the bottle label. Walter Reichardt served as the first board member and Werner Reichert as cellar master. Today, 58 winegrowing families cultivate a total of 335 hectares of vines in the single vineyards Altenburg, Bischofsgarten, Böhlig, Fuchsmantel, Gerümpel, Königswingert, Luginsland, Mandelgarten, Pechstein and Schlossberg, as well as Ungeheuer (Forst). They are planted with the white wine varieties Riesling, Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris, Gewürztraminer, Kerner, Morio-Muskat, Müller-Thurgau, Scheurebe, Huxelrebe and Silvaner, as well as the red wine varieties Pinot Noir, Frühburgunder, Dornfelder, Acolon, Regent, St. Laurent, Blaufränkisch, Blauer Portugieser, Schwarzriesling (Pinot Meunier), Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.
