The Romans introduced wine to Germania over 2000 years ago, thus influencing our region. In the 3rd century, the Germanic Alemanns broke through the Limes and expelled the Romans from Germania. During this time, the influence of the Alemanns upon the Dietlingen area was recognizable in the ending of the name specified by, "-ingen".

In the early Middle Ages, the counts of Hohenberg from her castle on the Turmberg mountain above Durlach ruled over the region and named it "Pfinzgau", which coincides with the tributary area of the rivulet Pfinz. The first documented mention of the wine-growing in our region comes from the short ruling time of those in the high mountain area of Dietlingen, during the 12th century. In the famous Codex of the cloister of Hirsau, the donation of vineyards to the national high powered cloister in Dietlingen, is also documented.

Countless generations strove for perfection with hard work and dedication for centuries in the Dietlingen vineyards. Our forefathers had to use a lot of strength and time to yield a profitable harvest from the scanty mussel lime ground so that they could achieve a modest living for their families. Wars, harvest failures and pests, like the vine pest disaster, pushed the Dietlingen winegrowers and the entire German wine-growing region into times of despair.
