Up to around 1980, wine was produced in the historical wine cellars of Kesselstatt Palace, branching out in all directions. In the 17th century, the cellars were built on parts of a Roman glassworks and stretched from the Cathedral Square to the former convent of Saint Afra. On approx. 4,000 sq m, the cellars provided enough space to accommodate 400 wooden wine casks with a capacity of 1.000 l each.


However, as time went by, the cellars became too small and challenges in terms of traffic, space and modernization occurred. This is why in the 1980s, the owners decided to transfer wine production to modern production facilities in the Ruwer valley: Marienlay castle. Since 1999, Marienlay castle has also taken on the role of the winery's administrative seat.


Nowadays, our atmospheric and heatable wine cellars are used as a storage room for our historical wine casks and for guided and entertaining wine-tastings. They can be booked for groups of at least 20 persons for celebrations of any kind.
