In 1855, the wine business has inherited one of the sons of Johann - Alois, who greatly expanded the capabilities of the company through their entrepreneurial skills and the acquisition of new vineyards. Since 1963, after the death of the head of the family Alois IV, the company began to lead his widow Christina Roessler and eldest daughter Vendelgard, which at that time was 21 years old.
