Barth

Pioneers of single-vineyard Riesling Sekt, Barth love all things sparkling. Following the traditional method, these Sekt masters have spent years honing their craft and are closely involved in the VDP Sekt Statute.

The Barth vineyards are eco-certified. Owners Christine and Mark Barth see themselves and their vineyard team as working hand-in-hand with nature in their journey to wonderful sparkling wines.

Barth prides itself on combining tradition and innovation; its modern wine shop stands above a treasure trove of mature wines, a state-of-the-art cellar contains old wooden barrels, and the latest cellar technology standing next to traditional riddling pupitres.

Barth joined the VDP in 1999 and produces 135,000 bottles annually.

Battenfeld Spanier

The dynamic husband-wife team of H. O. Spanier and CarolinSpanier-Gillot is the driving force behind the BattenfeldSpanier Estate. Their “secret sauce” is hidden deep beneath the soil of this outstanding winery located in Rheinhessen, namely layers of lime that add precise, vibrant minerality across the spectrum of their varietals: Riesling, Spätburgunder (Pinot Noir), and Silvaner. Cellarmaster H. O. has combined the perfectionism developed during an early career in sport with the trust in nature that goes hand-in-hand with the finest wine-making. When applied to organic and bio-dynamic vineyard and winery principles this combination of skill and intuition yields wines crafted almost single-handedly by a rich and unique terroir. The result is the estate’s incomparable Silver-label Riesling and vibrant Spätburgunder and Silvaner.

BattenfeldSpanier has 48,000 acres of holdings near Worms across from Wonnegau, Hohen-Sülzen, and the Zellertal and has been a proud member of the VDP since 2008.

Blankenhorn

At Blankenhorn, owner Martin Männer and cellar master Yvonne Männer are the kinds of perfectionists that German wine lovers adore: they’re obsessed in all the right ways with making sure each of their Baden wines has the right amount of time to mature in bottle before release. Not only time matters but also the vessel which is why this tight-knit family team uses large barrels holding up to 3,000 liters. The finished product is elegant wine all the more refined for being crafted from fruit that grows in certified sustainable vineyards. While Blankenhorn regards Gutedel as a great intro to its impressive portfolio, it also recommends its 2016 Sonnenstück Chardonnay GG and is proud of all its range from its Spätburgunder to its international varietals.

A VDP member since 1987, Martin and Yvonne work across 24,00 acres of clay-rich terroir in their 19th-century winery.
