The Collegium Wirtemberg is a winegrowing community in the Stuttgart area. The Collegium is fully committed to the Württemberg winemaking tradition and continues it at an excellent level.
Collegium Wirtemberg - colleagues on the mountain
The origins of Collegium Wirtemberg lie in the Uhlbach and Rothenberg winegrowing cooperatives, which merged in 2007. The vineyards of the community are located on the Württemberg in the Stuttgart city area, which is where the name comes from.
On the top of the Württemberg stands the Rothenberg burial chapel, where Württemberg's King Wilhelm I, as well as his wife and daughter, are buried. This very chapel is reflected in the logo of the community.
The historically valuable buildings of the two winegrowing cooperatives in Uhlbach and Rothenberg are still preserved and today serve as sales and tasting rooms.
The vineyards on the Württemberg
Today, Collegium Wirtemberg has about 150 hectares of vineyards, with a focus on red wine varieties. Typical for the Stuttgart region, the following varieties are mainly cultivated here:
- Trollinger (40 ha)
- Lemberger (17 ha)
- Pinot noir (14 ha)
In addition, white wine is also produced with an emphasis on Riesling. The soils are characterized by travertine and sandstone, which give the wines a very characteristic aroma. The vineyards range in altitude from 290 to 440 meters above sea level. Today, the Collegium Wirtemberg has over 200 members, 35 of whom are grape suppliers. The annual yield is about 13,000 hectoliters.
The winery of the Collegium Wirtemberg is today located at the Untertürkheimer Fleckensteinbruch, where steel tanks, as well as a wooden barrel cellar are available.
