Create Your Very Own Tradition In The Rheingau

The wineBANK on the Balthasar Ress wine estate offers you a great opportunity to do just that. Good wines never belong to just one person alone. It is a constant source of delight to own these liquid treasures. Yet at the same time we keep them to enjoy on special occasions with good friends or we even save them for the next generation. Our Rieslings are naturally blessed with a very good aging potential.

So, what could be better than offering our customers the opportunity of letting these very wines age under the best possible conditions with the added bonus of being able to enjoy them at any time in a stylish setting?

Christian Ress, Proprietor of the wineBANK Rheingau

In 2008, after nurturing an idea for many years, Christian Ress dared to shake up the very bedrock of his Balthasar Ress wine estate, whose beginnings stretch back to 1870. His concept, which was then heralded in Germany as totally unique and pioneering, still today fascinates not only wine aficionados but also all lovers of good design. Christian Ress is very well known in the wine business, primarily as co-owner and Managing Director of the VDP Balthasar Ress vineyards. But in recent years he has also founded a variety of companies operating in the wine industry and is partially involved in the running of these undertakings. He has, in the meantime, developed his initial idea of establishing a wineBANK on his own premises into an accompanying franchise concept.


To describe Marius as being WINE MAD, would be an understatement. Born and bred in the Rheingau Region of Germany, he has literally grown up in a Riesling vineyard. Whilst still at school, Marius jobbed at various wine – festivals and for several wineries, solid groundwork for his present and very extensive Network in the Wine World.

During Marius’ International Wine Industry studies, he continued to gain experience, in particular at the VDP Estate Winery Allendorf. This led him to joining the VDP Estate Winery, Balthasar Ress, in 2015. Having started as a part-timer he soon moved on to become Sales Manager and towards the end of 2018 he also took on the position of Club Manager for the wineBANK Rheingau.

Marius` talents don`t end there though. In his free time you will almost certainly find Marius on the ski-slopes of Austria, another passion of his having previously worked as a Ski instructor himself.
