Family – Wilhelm Kern GmbH (english)

Generations

Our family and their personalities are the focus of our company. It is the family philosophy that distinguishes us and which defines our own style. For us, a honest and open relationship with our customers, employees, winegrowers and colleagues is the solid foundation on which we firmly stand with both feet.

The personal contact is our primary focus and therefore we, unlike in many large corporations, remain in charge ourselves. Family members are responsible for all quality relevant areas – from the vineyard to the cellar including customer service. That raises quality optimization to an entirely new level.
