The "Winzergenossenschaft Achkarren am Kaiserstuhl eG" in the German wine-growing region of Baden was founded in 1929 by 16 local winegrowers. Today, 325 members cultivate a total of 150 hectares of vines. The managing director is Waldemar Isele, the cellar master is Christoph Rombach. The range of varieties consists of the white wine varieties Pinot Gris ( Grauburgunder) with 52 hectares, Müller-Thurgau, Pinot Blanc ( Weißburgunder), Silvaner, Gewürztraminer, Muscat, Chardonnay, Scheurebe and Riesling, as well as the red wine varieties Pinot Noir(Spätburgunder) with 50 hectares and Cabernet Mitos. The two single vineyard sites in the municipality differ significantly in the structure of their soils. While in the Castellberg the vines grow on pure loess loam, in the Schlossberg they take root in volcanic weathered rock, which is only covered in places with a relatively thin layer of loess loam.
In the best plots, yields arelimited to a maximum of 50 hl/ha. The wines produced from this are marketed as "Selection Best Barrel". For the rest of the wines, the yield limit is 90 hl/ha. The wines are matured in stainless steel tanksstainless steel , for the red wines, the dry Pinot Gris and the noble sweet wines in large wooden barrelslarge wooden barrel .

In front of the entrance to the cellar, rock samples and excavation objects from the Achkarr vineyards are on display in two large showcases.
