The Kreyer brand was founded in 1970 in Villefranche sur Saône, France - the centre of the Beaujolais wine production area. In 1998 the company changed ownership and was incorporated by Wine Technology GmbH (WTG), an Austrian, American & German partnership, and since then headquarters have been located in the triangle of Germany, France & Luxembourg, in the heart of the Mosel winegrowing region. Further company expansion led to the development of larger production facilities. The company has since expanded and changed its name to WTG-Quantor GmbH. WTG-Quantor is now represented in all major wine-growing countries worldwide, incorporating over 80 countries, including Chile, South Africa and Australia.
