Wolfberger's history : from the vineyards of Alsace to the tables of the world !
The history of Wolfberger begins over a century ago. In 1902, winegrowers in the village of Eguisheim decided to join forces to create one of the first cooperatives in Alsace.
United as one, pioneers in their field, they are continually innovating in order to ensure the development of the cellar and to preserve the typicity and quality of their wines. They were among the first to launch the AOC Alsace Crémant under the name crowning their success: Wolfberger. Today Wolfberger is a major player in the Alsace wine landscape, in France and around the world.
The Wolfberger Winery is one of the biggest players in French winemaking, due to its size and level of activity. To reach this degree of development the company built the Wolfberger brand, recognized today whenever one speaks of wine, crémants and eaux-de-vie of Alsace.
