Baden ​is a wine region in the south-west German state of Baden-Württemberg. It produces far more wine than its counterpart Württemberg. Baden faces (the equally productive) Alsace region across the Rhine in France. 

Organic vineyardsIn 1994 Baden had 105 farms and co-operatives producing organic wines from 350 hectares (865 acres), equating to 2.2% of Baden’s 16,000 hectares (39,520 acres) vineyard (Source: Günther Schruft,Grower experiences in Germany’, in Organic Grape and Wine Production Symposium, 1995, ed. R. Pool, p.65-75).
