Champagne and sparkling wine, called Sekt in Germany, has a long tradition starting around 1825 when the first sekt-cellars were founded. However, very little of it is actually exported and in most countries, especially in Asia, it is very difficult to find a good “Sekt” at all. It has so far been a well-kept secret that Germany produces excellent champagne although the virtues of German wines were extolled extensively by J. W. von Goethe, the world famous poet, in many of his letters.
The fact that Germans tend to keep most of their wine for themselves proves that they know how good their home-made wines really are. According to the country’s consumer statistics, the Germans drank about 422 Million 0,75l bottles of sparkling wine in 2006 alone.
Realizing this, Wine Cellar Asia decided that it is high time Singapore and the rest of Asia gets to taste as well as discover the fine tradition of good German champagne.
We are both proud and honored to be able to offer exclusive German champagne from three different famous winemakers. The exclusivity of these three vineyards is not only because of their tradition and specialty, but the fact that they produce a very limited amount of their delicious products.
We are thrilled about having the opportunity to represent exclusively these German boutique champagne producers in Singapore:
Weingut Geheimer Rat Dr. von Bassermann-Jordan (Rheinland-Pfalz, Germany)
Weingut Reichsrat von Buhl (Rheinland-Pfalz, Germany)
Weingut A. Christmann (Rheinland-Pfalz, Germany)
Weingut Pflueger (Rheinland-Pfalz, Germany)
