Wine history in Bacharach at the Rhine river
Altar rock to honor the wine God Bacchus
Bacharach at the Rhine river is not a Roman foundation, although it was referred to for a long time to the so-called Bacchusstein, the altar rock - latin "Bacchi ara". "Bacchi ara" was a slate rock in altar form in the Rhine river where, according to the legend, the wine God Bacchus was presented a sacrifice in good "wine years".
Unfortunately, this symbolic rock - it was between the island "Heilesen Werth" and the right Rhine river bank - was bombed away after 1850 during the Rhine river regulation. But it is known that Bacharach at the Rhine river existed before the Romans and its name can be traced back to the Celtic colonization - Baccaracum.
Vineyards belongted to the Koln / Cologne churches.
The first documentary mentioning of Bacharach at the Rhine river in the year 923. In further documents of the years 1019 / 1020, there is even talk about the assigment of vineyards and tithe rights to Cologne churches.
Most important trans-shipment center for wine
Bacharach at the Rhine river experienced its economical prosperity in the Middle Ages starting in the 13th century. Due to its convenient location at the Rhine river, it was the most important emporium, staple market and trans-shipment center for wine and wood. The economical downturn of Bacharach at the Rhine river started with the Thirty Years' War. In the aftermath, the town lost its supremacy as the biggest wine staple market, not least because of the noneconomical Rhine river tolls.
