The vat was initially owned by Ulrich, Duke of Württemberg and resides in the cellar of Hohentübingen castle. The vat has been used to primarily store wine throughout its history. The ownership of the vat has been passed down various royal figures of the state of Württemberg, but now is owned by the state of Baden-Württemberg.
