The vineyard was founded by monks who moved into the monastery in Wolf in 1478. The wine cellar for producing and storing the wine was built in the village instead of the surroundings of the church. The construction of the cellar began in 1488.

In 1557 during the reformation the confraternity was broken down and the protestant church was founded. They continued the vineyard from that moment on.
The today’s church of Wolf was built on the old cellar in 1685.

The Kirchengut Wolf possesses the only wine cellar under a church known up to now.
