Andreas Bender’s winemaking philosophy combines a good sense of soils, premium grapes, gentle cellar work, and a combination of traditional, time-proven methods and a fresh approach to branding. By many considered to be a maverick due to his somewhat unconventional and single-minded philosophy, Andreas has established himself as one of the most talented and capable young stars of the German wine industry. His wines can be found gracing the table of the German Chancellor’s home, Lufthansa’s business class service, as well as the restaurant’s of Gordon Ramsey, to name just a few of world-renowned clients that have discovered Andreas Bender’s magic touch.
“In his vineyards in the Mosel and Pfalz, Andreas lays the foundation for the outstanding quality of his wines by reducing the yields to allow the grapes to reach full maturity. He follows this up in the cellar with traditional, low intervention techniques. The result is top quality wines that show why German wines enjoyed a high reputation in top restaurants around the world at the turn of the 19th to 20th century. They are an absolute delight!”
