The wine growers’ cooperative of the Dagernova Weinmanufaktur – over 140 years in the Ahr valley
Still, we don’t rest on our laurels – every day we develop the tradition of our founding father’s viniculture further with creativity and innovation.
1200 hands, 600 hearts and 1 passion – that’s our motto nowadays
The 1200 hands of our 600 winegrower families represent the passion and will to give everything everyday to produce the best Ahr wine.
Tradition to us means that, in the Ahr valley, the viniculture of the families in our wine growers' cooperative is handed down from one generation to another. Therefore, we ensure that we shape a cultivated landscape that is unparalleled.
Going straight uphill – in the vineyard as well as in business is the reason for our success.
On the one hand, this means hard work. On the other hand, it also guarantees hand-picked quality. Only the ones that explore the vineyard on foot get a feeling for the needs of the grapes and by that lay the foundations for a top-quality product.
These popular wines for every taste are the ideal choice for home-style cooking as well as social events of every description. They’re fresh and fruity and were cultivated in a stainless steel tank – simply a delicious treat.
Wines that bear the handwriting-trademark of the Ahr valley. They represent the passion of our winegrowers, the fine feeling of our cellarman and our region’s unmistakable terroir: They’re as authentic and expressive as the Ahr valley.
Our Cult Line contains wines from the best areas of the Ahr Valley. Old vines and selective hand picking, paired with a consequently reduced harvest, ensure a top quality vintage. The wine matures in parts in new oak barrels (barriques) and offers therefor a top class wine experience.

Wine in Moderation
This program was introduced to support the whole wine profession in fighting alcohol abuse and alcohol-related damage. Even though the wine sector is heavily fragmented, the wine in Moderation-program was able to mobilize leading organizations and enterprises to acknowledge their social responsibility. The WIM-program’s main goal is to communicate a message under a common logo that speaks to every wine enthusiast. For the first time, a common program unites the whole wine sector.
