    Glamorous, timeless and successful without limit - sparkling wine par excellence.

    Made in Wiesbaden, at home in all over the world. Henkell is the international star and best seller when it comes to exporting German sparkling wine culture. The radiant and characterful brand can be found globally in more than 100 countries whenever life’s finest moments are celebrated.

    It all began with an idea. Mainz wine merchant Adam Henkell discovered the fine art of champagne-making in France. Back at his home, he successfully managed the "marriage" of the French art of cuvée and the art of German cellar-mastery. In 1856, he started making outstanding sparkling wine following the French example and this marked the beginning of a unique success story.

    Famous all over the world for quality of life, enjoyment and virtuoso sparkling wine production, even at the end of the 19th century, Henkell was an export pioneer and market leader and, in the 1950s, it played an important role in the German economic miracle.

    Back then and today, the best base wines and perfect technical skills of German and French cellar masters guarantee its inimitable flavor and consistent high quality.

    Modern enjoyment, rich in tradition: Henkell is a successful meeting of both.

    As the world’s northernmost fine wine producing region, Germany faces some of the most extreme climatic and topographic challenges in viticulture. But fortunately this country’s star variety, Riesling, is cold-hardy enough to survive freezing winters, and has enough natural acidity to create balance, even in wines with the highest levels of residual sugar. Riesling responds splendidly to Germany’s variable terroir, allowing the country to build its reputation upon fine wines at all points of the sweet to dry spectrum, many of which can age for decades.

    Classified by ripeness at harvest, Riesling can be picked early for dry wines or as late as January following the harvest for lusciously sweet wines. There are six levels in Germany’s ripeness classification, ordered from driest to sweetest: Kabinett, Spätlese, Auslese, Beerenauslese, Trockenbeerenauslese and Eiswein (ice wine). While these classifications don’t exactly match the sweetness levels of the finished wines, the Kabinett category will include the drier versions and anything above Auslese will have noticeable—if not noteworthy—sweetness. Eiswein is always remarkably sweet.

    Other important white varieties include Müller-Thurgau as well as Grauburguner (Pinot Gris) and Weissburguner (Pinot Blanc). The red, Spätburgunder (Pinot Noir), grown in warmer pockets of the country can be both elegant and structured.

    As the fourth largest wine producer in Europe (after France, Italy and Spain), in contrast to its more Mediterranean neighbors, Germany produces about as much as it consumes—and is also the largest importer of wine in the E.U.

    Image for Vintage content section

    Representing the topmost expression of a Champagne house, a vintage Champagne is one made from the produce of a single, superior harvest year. Vintage Champagnes account for a mere 5% of total Champagne production and are produced about three times in a decade. Champagne is typically made as a blend of multiple years in order to preserve the house style; these will have non-vintage, or simply, NV on the label. The term, "vintage," as it applies to all wine, simply means a single harvest year.
