The experience vineyard "Schloss Wackerbarth" is located in Radebeul in the German wine growing region of Saxony. In 1836 the French cellarmaster Johann Joseph Mouzon brought the classic bottle fermentation from his home town of Reims to Radebeul. He thus laid the foundation stone for the second oldest sparkling wine cellar in Germany. The history of the winery is also closely connected with the Saxon court: between 1727 and 1730, August Christoph Count von Wackerbarth (1662-1734), one of the closest confidants of the Saxon ruler August I (1670-1733), known as "August the Strong", had the Baroque palace and gardens built as his retirement residence. After extensive renovation and the construction of the modern manufactory, Schloss Wackerbarth was reopened in 2002 as Europe's first adventure winery. In its picturesque ensemble of baroque grounds, centuries-old terraced vineyards and modern wine and sparkling wine manufacture, more than 190,000 guests are welcomed each year. Today the estate is owned by the Sächsische AufbauBank (SAB); Sonja Schilg is the managing director and Jürgen Aumüller the oenological director.
