...there were the 80s, the love for wines, a passion for Southern France, the distribution of occitanian wines and working in a small cider wine-press. Finally, Roland Fortmüller founded the Naturian-Ökoweine import company in 1992. His goal was to trade the products of high qualitiy wineries with bionomic cultivation processes. This idea still characterizes the companys actions: a philosophy of face-to-face contacts, high professionalism and an extraordinary knowledge of the organic-wine market are Naturians main features.
For more than 20 years Naturian-Ökoweine is one of the first and foremost traders in the segment and enhances the development of the organic-wine market in Germany. The mere focus on biologically-grown wines makes Naturian an experienced and competent business partner for both, wineries and retailers.
The majority of wines we offer are classic estate bottled. However, some of these wines are exclusively sold in Germany. Another important and growing practice is the purchasing and bottling of wines from approved wineries. For this segment, we offer an environmentally compatible returnable system with established brands such as Tango (sparkling wine), El Torito (red, white and rosé), as well as our butterfly-series. The labeling of bottled wines for our customers is optional as well.
From all over the world
Deliberate selection, high quality standards and most of all, our personal contacts to wine growers distinguish our product line. The sales mix embraces each of the significant cultivation areas among Europe, but also overseas: Germany, Italy, France, Spain, Portugal, Austria, Chile, Argentina and South Africa.
