THE CLUB

The wineBANK movement started here, in the world-famous cradle of Riesling. The wineBANK in Hattenheim is attached to a winegrowing estate, with three exceptional fine-dining restaurants close by. La dolce vita awaits, in luxurious Rheingau style.

wineBANK Rheingau – History meets modernity

The wineBANK features two historic vaulted cellars, from the 17th and 20th centuries respectively, that have been given a stylish makeover. Regionalism and sustainability are woven into the overall wineBANK design. The cellar has retained its beneficial coat of so-called cellar mold, which delivers a natural atmosphere that has been enhanced with high-quality slate from Bacharach and quartzite from the Taunus mountains. Energy-saving LEDs provide ideal lighting without emitting UV rays that could damage the wine.

Another special feature: wineBANK founder Christian Ress is also the owner of renowned VDP member estate Balthasar Ress. This lends itself to wonderful synergy between the Rheingau wineBANK and the Balthasar Ress estate. As a wineBANKer, you can have wines from Balthasar Ress delivered straight to your locker at special pricing. For larger format bottles, they can be stored in a dedicated large-format storage space. Book a moderated wine tasting or vineyard tour, concluding with a jovial toast back at the wineBANK.

The Hosts

“The fact that my idea of creating a place where wine enthusiasts can come together day and night, store their wine optimally, share their passion and experience exclusive events is so successful makes me very proud.”

“Wine is incredibly multifaceted —
to show all these facets of wine and to experience them with the members is what I enjoy most as a club manager.”

The Rheingau’s most beautiful side

The Rheingau is more than just home to some of Germany’s finest wines. It is also, from both a geographical and gastronomical viewpoint, an absolute anomaly. The small town of Hattenheim features a unique microclimate as well as boasting three outstanding restaurants known far beyond the borders of the Rheingau itself. Combine an aperitif at the wineBANK with a fine meal at Franz Keller’s “Adlerwirtschaft,” Josef Laufer’s “Zum Krug” or the “Kronenschlösschen,” followed by a stroll through world-famous Rüdesheim or a stop to admire the Eltville Rose Garden.
