Winegrowers' co-operative

Association of winegrowers with the aim of jointly utilising resources, processing the grapes produced and marketing the wine, thereby achieving the effectiveness of large-scale operations. These usually operate their own winery. However, there are also large co-operative wineries that work for several other co-operatives without their own winery. One of the most important of these is the huge "Badische Winzerkeller" in Breisach in the German wine-growing region of Baden, which is one of the largest in Europe. The origins of such associations lie in the first third of the 19th century, when the far-reaching economic and political changes of the beginning of the industrial age brought countless European winegrowers into bitter distress. Liberal economic policy met with a non-organised winegrowing community, which in many winegrowing regions was also still very poorly trained.
