Touching the foot of vineyard terraces, the Zimmerlin winery is located in the beautiful town of Bötzingen in Baden. Surrounded by the impressive mountain range of Kaiserstuhl, the vineyards boast the fertile and mineral-rich terroirs of the region. They are the home of more than 30 orchid species and unique flora and fauna.
Established in 1955, the winery got its name from the founding couple – Olga and Rudolf Zimmerlin. Later, their son Dietmar acquired the winery and became a renowned producer in the wine-growing region – Kaiserstuhl. The ownership of the winery changed in 2010 when the Steiner family took over the estate and expanded the business, along with his new, young, and expert team. Today, with a lot of potentials, Alexander Steiner operates Weingut Zimmerlin with enormous dedication and passion. The owner believes in constant innovation, which is why new ideas are being introduced in the winemaking, along with traditional methods.
Joining forces with neighboring wineries, the group has a total of 20 hectares of land dedicated to viticulture, out of which family-owned seven hectares are added vines from other estates. The owner mainly focuses on the cultivation of Burgundy vines. Alexander produces top-notch red and white wines, together with delicious rose and sparkling wines, all under different labels, namely, Bötzinger Eckberg, Bötzinger Lasenberg, Bahlinger Silberberg and Eichstetter Herrenbuck.
In the cellar, selective bunches undergo slow and cold fermentation, followed by a long rest on lees that enhances the richness and quality of each wine. They pay great attention to keep the aromas of each wine intact. After fermentation, the wines are stored in wooden barrels for proper aging and refining of grains, under controlled temperature conditions.
