Social responsibility

As a cooperative and employer, we bear responsibility for our winegrowers and employees. The moderate, conscious handling of wine is, however, our responsibility towards our customers.

Cooperative

Nowadays, the meaning of the word "cooperative" is highly topical: Several people concentrate their interests and competences and create a platform for processing and distributing their products in common. Heterogeneity is the mystery: Wine growers with small vineyard plots, often exhaustingly cultivated per hand, meet such ones with large mechanical edited areas. All of them have the same target: premium grape quality. They have to be unified by the cooperative which is their subsistence - that is our social responsibility.

Wine in Moderation

Wine in Moderation is a worldwide initiative for the moderate, responsible use of wine in order to avoid alcohol-related harm. The message "Wine in moderation - enjoying wine consciously" is intended to raise awareness and inform both the wine industry and consumers. The aim is to keep protecting wine as a cultural asset and to establish the moderate enjoyment of wine. WINZER KREMS is aware of its social responsibility concernning the use of wine and therefore is a member of this movement.

Company health measures

In 2020, WINZER KREMS received the seal of approval for workplace health promotion from the Austrian Health Insurance Fund.

  •     Free annual flu vaccination for all employees
  •     Purchase of equipment to facilitate work ( for example e-stacker)
