The family-run BARTH Wine and Sparkling Wine Estate is situated in the village of Hattenheim, in middle of the Rheingau valley and has 18,5 ha of vineyards under organic cultivation. It is a member of the prestigious VDP (Verband Deutscher Prädikatsweingüter). The varieties are mostly typical for the region such as Riesling and Pinot Noir but also Pinot Blanc and Cabernet Sauvignon. Hattenheim grand cru sites like Hassel or Wisselbrunnen are south facing, consisting of loam, clay, marl and quartzite. These optimum terroir conditions are the perfect base for meaningful wines and sparkling wines, which are hand crafted by traditional bottle fermentation, single variety and minimum of 24 months maturation on the yeast before disgorging.
Striving to combine traditional values and modern technologies, BARTH is always looking for new, innovative ways of working with the natural product wine and sparkling wine on the highest possible quality level.
