SINCE 2003

History of the company – briefly told

Head of the family business Winklerweine is Adrian Winkler, a fan of the mountains. At the age of 20, he developed a great passion for wines. Especially the wines from Bordeaux and Burgundy have captivated him until today. He developed his passion piece by piece. And out of the joy of the particularly fine wines, the former teacher bought rarities from private wine cellars in his free time and sold them on the Internet. His wines were in high demand and so, what started as a hobby, became a profession. In 2003, Adrian Winkler became self-employed as a wine merchant with his own auction platform. His faithful companion and wife Barbara took care of the shipping. The business developed so well that his longtime friend Richard Bieri joined the team shortly after and stayed until retirement. Today Winklerweine is a popular address when it comes to the sale or purchase of premium wines and wine rarities.

Adrian Winkler explains wine rarity


The founder

« I am lucky that my passion has become my profession. When I founded Weinklerweine in 2003, the first two years were rather quiet. But from 2005 on, business developed very positively. 2005 is also a very popular vintage year for wines from Bordeaux and Burgundy. Wines from particularly good vintages develop their strong aromas only in the course of time. The older they get, the better they are. And that’s exactly how it went with the business. I still take that as a good omen. »

The woman for shipping

« I take a lot of time packing the wines carefully and safely. Because most of them have already had an impressive amount of time behind them to become what they are. For us it is essential that our wines arrive safely and in good order at our customers. And many of our wines are on their way to faraway countries. »

Sabine Szabo


The woman for Customer Service and Marketing

"Good gets around well known. But sometimes we can help a little. A good glass of wine, we have developed some nice ideas. I think the best prerequisite for successful advertising and outstanding customer service is the own enthusiasm that arises when you love what you do. And when our customers feel that this is the best confirmation for us. »

Richard Bieri


Our man, who picks up the cellar treasures.

« "Richi, could you step in for a while?" asks my friend Adrian every time when the appointments are tumbling over again. Even after my retirement a good year ago, my heart is still attached to winkler wines. Personal contact with the customer and being on the spot quickly is essential for winkler wines. I am pleased that I can make an important contribution here from time to time. That's why I wish my friend Adrian and his team that things will continue to go so well and that I will be able to step in often... »

We are a true family business. Trust, appreciation and of course the great passion for fine wines connects us deeply. We love what we do. And that is what our customers from all over the world feel and appreciate.
