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.

The founder

«I am lucky that my passion has become my profession. When I founded Weinklerweine in 2003, things were a little quieter for the first two years. But from 2005 the business developed very positively. 2005 is also a very popular vintage for wines from Bordeaux and Burgundy. Wines from particularly good vintages only develop their strong aromas over time. The older they get, the better they are. And so it was with business. I still take that as a good omen."

That is why I wish my friend Adrian and his team that things continue to go so well and that I can step in often ... »
