The "Winzergenossenschaft Mayschoß-Altenahr e.G." was founded in 1868 under the name "Winzerverein Mayschoß an der Ahr". Mergers took place in 1982 with the Altenahr winegrowers' cooperative and in 2009 with the Walporzheim winegrowers' cooperative, which was founded in 1871 and has since been known as Weinmanufaktur Walporzheim. Matthias Baltes is the chairman of the board and managing director, Rudolf Stodden the sales manager and Rolf Münster the cellar master. Visits to the historic wine barrel cellar with its adjoining wine museum are possible. In addition, a variety of events, such as culinary wine tastings with top chefs, are organised around wine.
As honorary chairman of the Domäne Wachau, it is the easiest and quickest way for me to access the wein.plus encyclopaedia when I have questions. The certainty of receiving well-founded and up-to-date information here makes it an indispensable guide.Hans-Georg Schwarz
