Solidarity Project

Growers from the whole of Baden have implemented these stringent requirements in both vineyard and cellar in a – to date – unique solidarity project. In this way it has been possible to retain old premium vineyard sites such as very steep vineyards or terraced sites, where cultivation and maintenance is much more labour-intensive. Fritz Keller comments "It is not only that we are thereby able to make a positive contribution to preservation of the countryside and traditional regional culture, but the growers also achieve higher revenues and total value is improved". By co-operating in this project growers have planning security and also a more secure means of existence so that even structural transformation due to generational change can be cushioned.
