From agricultural business to a successful winery.
Thomas Schmid's father ran an agricultural business with vines. For Thomas Schmid, however, it was clear from the beginning that he did not want to become a farmer. He decided to do an apprenticeship as a winegrower and converted the farm to viticulture after his training at the end of the 80s. At that time he also began to press grapes himself. He started with two varieties: Pinot Noir and Müller-Thurgau. In the beginning, the wine was still delivered to an external winery, but little by little Thomas Schmid kept his grapes and pressed all the wine himself. From then on the business grew steadily. Partnerships were established with the local gastronomy and the company started with contract wine pressing. In 2013 the Schmids built a completely new winery with a solar system on the roof. In 2019 the barrique cellar was completed. Over the years, not only the assortment and the size of the winery has developed, but also the quality.
