The Wein- & Sektkellerei Josef Drathen GmbH & Co. KG can look back over 100 years of tradition in the winemaking and sparkling wine production business which has been handed down from generation to generation. A longstanding clientele built up over decades and the interaction between a successful market-orientated management and young, motivated and dedicated staff is the basis of our success. Today, Josef Drathen GmbH & Co. KG is one of the leading winemakers and sparkling wine producers of the Moselle region. The extensive assortment of German and international wines, sparkling wines and sparklers, mulled wine specialities and wine cocktails are sold both on the German domestic market and worldwide on numerous export markets. A successful company policy has led to the expansion of the business through takeovers and also by creating new businesses so that today various subsidiaries are subsumed under the holding of Josef Drathen GmbH & Co. KG.
