The wines keep constant high level and are usually the best in their respective category in the area. Weaknesses, there is little, but can occur in difficult vintages. However, this must be balanced in good years with particularly compelling assortments so that an operation can hold the status. In most cases you can blindly buy.

The "Markgraf von Baden" winery has its headquarters in the municipality of Salem (Lake Constance area) in the German Baden wine growing region. The gender of the house of Baden gave the name to the growing area. The family has played a decisive role in shaping Baden's wine culture. Margrave Christoph I. of Baden (1453-1527) was responsible for the first wine law in Baden from 1494. Grand Duke Carl Friedrich von Baden (1728-1811) is considered the creator of Baden's quality viticulture. In 1782, he had 3,700 Riesling vines planted in Klingelberg (Durbach) for the first time in pure variety. The variety proved to be excellent and was subsequently planted in many Baden communities under the name Klingelberger, which is still used today. The first plantings of the Gewürztraminer and the Clevner (Traminer) also go back to the innovative Grand Duke. In 1925, the Müller-Thurgau was the first vineyard in Germany to be planted. The Margrave had also abolished serfdom in Baden, introduced compulsory schooling and rendered outstanding services to research in viticulture and the training of young winegrowers.

Since 1998, the oldest son of Margrave Max von Baden, SKH Bernhard Prinz von Baden, has continued the winegrowing tradition. In addition to viticulture, agriculture/forestry, fish farming and the preservation of historical monuments are also business areas of the Margravial Head Office. The Markgraf von Baden Winery cultivates a total of 135 hectares of vines in the Baden wine region on two sites in the Lake Constance and Ortenau areas. Managing director is SGH Michael Prinz von Baden. Volker Faust is on site in Salem and is responsible for the winery as general manager. Achim Kirchner is the direct contact person in Staufenberg. Martin Kölble is the cellar master. Since January 2012 the winery has been a member of the VDP (Association of German Prädikat Wineries)

The former monastery of Salem with extensive vineyards came into the possession of the house in 1802. The vineyards of Salem Castle (Lake Constance area) cover 110 hectares in the individual sites Chorherrenhalde (Meersburg), Kirchhalde (Birnau), Leopoldsberg (Bermatingen), Sängerhalde (Markdorf) and Schlossberg (Kirchberg), as well as nine hectares in the monopoly individual site of Rheinburg Castle (Gailingen). The red wine variety Pinot Noir is cultivated, as well as the white varieties Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris, Müller-Thurgau, Bacchus, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. The wines are produced in the three lines "Gutsweine Markgraf von Baden", "Lagenweine" and "Fidelitas". Bottle-fermented sparkling wines and noble brandies (wine, fruit) are also produced

Staufenberg Castle, which has been in the possession of the house since 1693, is located in the community of Durbach (Ortenau area). The vineyards comprise 25 hectares of vineyards in the single vineyard location of Schlossberg (Durbach). The vineyard Schloss Staufenberg, which is mentioned in some sources as an independent site, is only an alias for Schlossberg. The two main varieties cultivated are Klingelberger Riesling (45%) and Blauer Spätburgunder (30%). Others are Clevner (local name for the Traminer), Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. Autochthonous yeasts selected from the Klingelberg are used for fermentation. All Spätburgunder red wines come into contact with wooden barrels. The absolute top Pinot Noirs are fermented exclusively in wooden cuves and then mature in new barriques.
