Upcoming Winemaker Events


15 November: vineyard Emil Bauer & Söhne  

Brothers Alexander and Martin Bauer lead the fifth generation of the family business, Emil Bauer & Söhne.  The winery is located on the Southern Wine Route in Rhineland-Palatinate, which is home to grape varietals such as Riesling, Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.

The brothers share a sense of humour and are not afraid to innovate, noticeably adorning the winery’s bottle labels with funny slogans.  With the winery named “Newcomer of the Year” (2014 Falstaff Wein Trophy Awards) and one of the best winemakers in Germany (Der Feinschmecker magazine, January 2014), these two brothers have revolutionised the German wine market, bringing fresh ideas and first-class wine along with them.


21 November: vineyard Balthasar-Ress

Get to know Christian Ress, who is already the fifth generation in the family business.  In 2010 he took over the responsibility for the business operations of the Balthasar-Ress vineyard.  The Ress family has been located in Hattenheim for decades.  Over the generations the family was well known for their butcher’s business “butcher Ress”, which still exists. 

In 1870 Balthasar Ress founded the guesthouse Ress and therefore laid the foundation for a long gastronomic tradition as well as vineyard.  With the start of the gastronomic activities in 1870, the family offered their first wines, which they called “Von Unserm” (of us).  The vineyard has a size of about 46 hectares. 

About 90% of the ground is planted with Riesling, and they also plant Pinot Noir and White Burgundy.
