A PERFECT CLIMATE FOR WINE
Medieval records show that the aristocracy as well as churches, monasteries and cities participated in viticulture all around Lake Constance. Many vineyards that were established are still around today. This region is known for its ability to retain warmth, thanks to the lake and the special characteristics of the soil. Viticulture in Meersburg has been traced to 1210. The annals of the episcopal church in Constance makes reference to a vineyard belonging to Manegoldus von Rohrdorf, which passed to the bishop due to lack of an heir.
