Winzergenossenschaft Mayschoß-AltenahrPhoto: Deutsches Weininstitut
Winzergenossenschaft Mayschoß-Altenahr. In the 19th century, life in the Ahr valley was characterised by bitter poverty and famine. Many inhabitants emigrated to the American continent. Following the suggestion of the itinerant teacher Herrberg, 18 Mayschoßers founded the world's first winegrowers' cooperative in 1868. In the following year, the entry was made in the Koblenz commercial and cooperative register as Winzer Verein zu Mayschoß – Eingetragene Genossenschaft. In 1881, the winegrowers' association already had 141 members. Through the merger with the Winzergenossenschaft Altenahr (1982) and the takeover of the Winzergenossenschaft Walporzheim (2009, since then Weinmanufaktur Walporzheim), a strong community was formed that today handles grapes from 460 winegrowers and cultivates 150 hectares of vines. The historic wooden barrel cellar and the wine museum fell victim to a flood of the century in 2021.
