The oldest wine cooperative in Germany, Mayschoss-Altenahr, is located in the small town of Mayschoss, in the Arweiler region of Rhineland-Palatinate. Mayshoss is conveniently located in the area of Lower Artale, on the steep slopes of the Rhine tributary - the river Ar. This area is famous for the best red wines in Germany, among which the Pinot Noir varieties made of grapes are especially distinguished.
The Mayschoss Cooperative was founded on December 20, 1868. On that day, the charter of the cooperative was adopted, 18 members were confirmed and its first president, Nikolaus Nakel, was elected. The following year Mayshoss was included in the trade and cooperative register in Koblenz. In the following years, new winemakers joined the society, and in 1881 it already included 141 participants. Members of the cooperative were actively engaged in the construction of underground vaulted cellars-corridors, where their wines ripened.
In 1889, the office building was erected, where the staff of Mayschoss-Altenahr are still sitting. Its 50th anniversary was to be celebrated in 1918, but the tragic events of the First World War prevented this. Its co-operative has celebrated its centenary, numbering already 240 members. Shortly thereafter, on March 22, 1982, a merger with another wine cooperative, Altenar, took place. So there was a modern wine cooperative Mayshoss-Altenar .
In September 2009, it was decided to merge with the second oldest cooperative in Germany - Walporzheim, formed in 1871. At present, Mayschoss-Altenahr has 420 employees, the area of vineyards is 150 hectares, 1.3 million bottles of wine are produced per year. Vineyards grow Pinot Noir (Schpetburgunder), Riesling, Portugiser and Frühburgunder varieties.
