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 cellarmasters guarantee its inimitable flavour and consistent high quality.
Henkell - cosmopolitan, but still proud to display its origins on its label in the form of the golden fleur-de-lis from the coat of arms of its home town. Every room of the original building in Wiesbaden is touched by the charisma of the brand. In the imposing cellar building, there is a homage to the cuvée made from four vine varieties, immortalised in the stained glass in the Blaue Salon. The magnificent marble hall, once a reception hall for business partners from all over the world, is regularly open for glittering balls, cultural and sporting events or as an impressive location for filming the latest Henkell advertisement.
Modern enjoyment, rich in tradition: Henkell is a successful meeting of both.
