Manufaktur Jörg Geiger: German wines, alcohol-free beverages & fruit brandies
Manufaktur Jörg GeigerSchlat, Germany
Owner Jörg Geiger is a trained chef and hotel manager. He’s strongly driven by the Swabian virtues of passion and perfection, but also pays great attention to sustainability. With the utmost respect for nature, Jörg is always aiming to achieve optimal quality. Over the years, his desire for constant improvement surely hasn’t faded – nor has his imaginative thinking. In fact, you could say that his factory was founded out of defiance. “Everyone told me that the old orchards and their tall trees make no sense," Jörg explains. “That triggered an urge to show people that you can actually make amazing products from these orchards.”
"Innovation, perfection and passion are our drive for great products."

Where others stop, Jörg Geiger begins
In general, people are drinking less alcohol nowadays, and Jörg Geige is a pioneer in developing great non-alcoholic alternatives. A lot of Jörg Geiger's classic drinks are moving away from sweet, luscious, fruity flavours. Non-alcoholic beverages now have body and structure thanks to tannins and herbs. The fruit is harvested earlier to reduce the sweetness. This results in a nuanced, complex and diverse fine sparkling wine. Jorg’s motto is "Alcohol-free in the fast lane". Because of this, he has a product and concept to suit every taste and requirement. A wide range of products is offered by the manufactory, from fruity classics to expressive seasonal products to complex cuvées and meal accompaniments.
Swabian meadow fruit is a taste experience
Over the past 20 years, Manufaktur Jörg Geiger has passed on the added value of its meadow fruit creations to the producers and suppliers. In sustainable agriculture, the old tradition of Swabian meadow fruit cultivation plays a pioneering role. The development of high-stemmed giant trees takes centuries, even with the new plantings. By doing this, they can see generations come and go, and everything that they plant on their meadows will be harvested only by their children. Jörg Geiger has marketed some of his products to a wider audience in order to preserve the unique cultural landscape of meadow orchards in the region and to protect and preserve this unique natural monument.
The growing awareness of the Jörg Geiger Manufactory brand is very useful in the development of their sustainability projects. This makes it possible for them to focus on soil revitalization, soil diversity, nature conservation and preservation of variety. A few alcohol-free creations today give them the economic freedom to pursue their passion: experimenting and creating innovative and creative small series. They also produce a line of inspiration products for people who are just as eager to experiment. The inspiration at Jörg Geiger Manufactory truly is never-ending.
