One of the most famous wineries from Baden is Weingut Salwey. The winery is especially appreciated for its phenomenal wines from Grau-, Weiß und Spätburgunder, all of which are among the best wines in Germany. Another specialty is the Weissherbst (rosé type) from Spätburgunder (Pinot Noir) and Riesling. The history of the winery dates back to the mid-18th century, with Weingut Salwey remaining unchanged in family hands and still located in its original location in Kaiserstuhl, Baden.

The total vineyard management includes 39 hectares with vineyard properties in: Oberrotweiler Kirchberg, Eichberg, Henkenberg and the Glottertaler Eichberg. A new cellar in Niederrotweil provides much-needed air and space for the planned 10-hectare vineyard expansion. Weingut Salwey is a member of the VDP (Verband Deutscher Prädikatsweingüter), which includes the best wineries in Germany.

The Salwey RS Barrique comes from the top vineyards of older vines. The wine is aged in barrique (1/3 new fill, 1/3 second fill and 1/3 previous fill). The Barrique RS is a delicious red Spätburgunder or a German Pinot Noir from Baden. This oak-aged Spätburgunder is more intense red in the glass than its little brothers and the color is deep red but still clear. The Barrique RS Salwey is very elegant and powerful with notes of strawberries, cherries, blackberries and blueberries but after some rolling it also becomes earthy with notes of leather and espresso. In the mouth, the wine has a powerful fruit attack with a core of cherries. Powerful midriff with firm tannin structure. Good storage potential. Put this wine in a line-up with some nice burgundies and don't tell your guests anything. Bet you're impressed. Delicious with roast duck/poultry, creamy, firm cheeses and of course with a Coq au vin.
