The winery is located in the community of Ihringen (Kaiserstuhl area) in the German Baden
wine region. It was founded in 1881 by Josef Fidel Stigler. Initially, it was used to meet the needs of his station bar in Freiburg. After the railway station and the Stiglers' house were completely bombed in 1945, Rudolf Stigler moved with his family to a weekend home in Ihringen and from then on devoted himself exclusively to winegrowing. Since 1991, the estate has been managed by Andreas and Regina Stigler, now in the fourth generation of the family. The vineyards comprise ten hectares of vineyards in the individual locations Eichberg
(Freiburg), as well as Fohrenberg and Winklerberg
(Ihringen). They are planted with Spätburgunder, Riesling, Grauburgunder, Weißburgunder, Silvaner, Traminer, Müller-Thurgau, Sauvignon Blanc and Scheurebe. The winery is a member of the VDP
(Verband deutscher Prädikatsweingüter).
