Change and added value

Change and value creation

In Rheinhessen, about 2,500 wineries and winegrowers currently cultivate a vineyard area of approximately 26,500 ha. This is only one third of how many it was 30 years ago. However, with almost three times the size they used to have, today's wineries are much better prepared for future.

About 1,500 winegrower families do not only cultivate the grapes, but also produce their own wine and market it themselves.

The strength, that grape and bulk wine producers have, is the efficiency that they get from their specification and size. Sales in food retail or export have mainly been taken over by large commercial wineries.

The future of self-marketers lies in the increase of value creation. Community initiatives such as RS Rheinhessen Silvaner, Selection Rheinhessen and the VDP classification are an important support in the winemaker's work.

Structural change in Rheinhessen continues. With every new generation in a wine-growing business there are new decisions made concerning growth or value creation. And yet, it only ever is a good decision, if it is good for the next generation.
