Economy and infrastructureEdit

 
Klein-Winternheim

The municipality’s economy was long dominated by winegrowing and fruit growing. Since the state capital is nearby, however, many commercial businesses have also been drawn to the municipal area. For example, a car’s technical condition can be certified by the Gesellschaft für Technische Überwachung (“Company for Technical Inspection”, which is officially recognized in Germany as a certification body).

A tapping service is offered and for winemakers there is a big speciality shop for winery demands with unique expertise (more than 50 years) in sulphur dioxide handling. As the only German dealer in this field, the shop’s stock runs the gamut of products from containers, accessories and duct components to volumetric metering systems.
