Wilthener wine distillery
Enjoyment from the best home
The master brewer Christiann Traugott Hünlich in Wilthen founded the company CT Hünlich on May 1st, 1842. He brewed excellent beer and a little later also "Wilthener Brandtewein". In 1885 his son Karl Albert Hünlich set up a wine distillery in which the wine distillate could be produced. In 1900 he sent the largest barrel, in which the wine distillate was stored, together with its contents, to the Paris World Exhibition. The "Paris barrel" that is still in existence today was awarded gold and silver. From 1951, the production of brandy grew steadily, so that capacities were expanded and modernization work was carried out. In 1990, the "Wilthener Weinbrennerei GmbH" was established, shortly afterwards the Gräflich von Hardenberg'sche Kornbrennerei acquired the company and association of both houses with the change of name to "Hardenberg Wilthen AG".

WILTHEN - experience in Upper Lusatia
A woman with a sword and scales, next to her a weaver and a bunch of grapes. Justitia, the ancient Roman goddess of justice and embodiment of justice. The Justitia has probably carried the Wilthener coat of arms since 1669, when Wilthen was granted market and town rights. In 1920, the symbol of the typical branches of the textile industry and distillery was added as a sign in order to preserve the principle of uniqueness. Due to the long and impressive history of the city of Wilthen, there is a lot to discover, whether on site or in the Upper Lusatia area. As a former "Erbgericht zum Pichotal", the "Landidyll Hotel Erbgericht Tautewalde" was restored in detail in 1993 and reopened as a hotel in December 1994. Numerous hiking and biking trails make this place a wonderful adventure trip.
