In Ramsthal, wine has been cultivated since 1122. At that time each family had its own vineyard and produced the wine for own purposes.

In 1966 Karl-Heinz and Thekla Baldauf started to bottle the wines into the typical Franconian-wine bottles which are called "Bocksbeutel" due to the special shape. We have maintained this tradition and still offer you the wines from Ramsthal and Hammelburg in "Bocksbeutel". Nevertheless we do also feel the need to meet modern requirements that’s why innovation is very important for us.



Family winery

Since 1991 the business is run by the family’s sons. We are Gerald and Ralf Baldauf. We have both acquired a deep and profound knowledge and experience by learning the profession of a winemaker and by studying the technics of wine cultivation and production at university. The local sale of the wines however is our wifes’ responsability.


Our wine store

On 9th of May 2008 we opened our redesigned wine store. This new building has given us enough space to present our premium products in an adequate way. You will certainly appreciate the extraordinary atmosphere and feel comfortable in our premises. In order to ease the access to our winery you will find parking places on the wine estate.


Best sites

At the moment we dispose of about 18 ha of vineyards. Some of them are situated in steep hills along the valley of the river Saale. Our wines grow in an ideal climate on good soil. The names of our sites are:

  • Ramsthaler St. Klausen
  • Hammelburger Trautlestal

It is wonderful to go for a walk or to hike in the vineyards. The landscape offers a marvellous view. Besides you can learn a lot about wine as there are information signs all along the path.
