Schwarzenbach Weinbau

Zürichsee, Switzerland


Wine-making is a family affair at the Schwarzenbach Winery. For five generations the Schwarzenbach family has dedicated itself to winegrowing. The winery in Meilen on the right bank of Lake Zurich currently has 10 hectares of vines. Schwarzenbach Weinbau concentrates on varietal wines and cultivates the traditional wine culture of Lake Zurich. Cooperation and exchange with other winegrowers as well as with the local gastronomy is essential.

History and tradition play an important role at Schwarzenbach Weinbau. For 100 years and five generations, the Schwarzenbach family has been pressing wine in Meilen on Lake Zurich. A stroke of luck was the discovery of an equally old yeast from Meilen at a tasting in 2008, and since then a piece of wine history has also been found in the products of the Schwarzenbach winery.
