Welcome to WineCellar Asia

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)
Bergsträsser WINZER eG (Odenwald, Germany)
Weinhaus Henninger (Rheinland-Pfalz, Germany)

Besides that we are proud to have expanded our portfolio to Portuguese wines - Quinta Da Pacheca from the Douro region - and Edgerton Pink Gin from London.

A. Christmann

A. Christmann

This German wine estate with its well-established heritage, belongs to the best wine makers of the Pfalz, a famous wine region. It was founded in 1845 by Johann and Professor Dr. Ludwig Haeusser.

Marrying a Christmann resulted in him embracing the name of the “Weingut” at the beginning of the 20th century.

The current owner, Steffen Christmann took over the estate in 1994 and manages it very successfully. He is also now the chairman of the Union of the “Prädikatsweingüter” (VDP). Some years ago he started cultivating his vineyards bio-dynamically, which means not using pesticides and herbicides. 70% of the estate’s grapes are Rieslings and they matured in their impressive arched wine cellar built in 1575. Once again in 2007, his excellent dry Rieslings were ranked in the list of Top of German wines.

Pflueger

Pflueger

Wine estate Pflueger is one of the best ecological winemakers of Germany and is of course certified according to the rules of “eco vin”. Having all their vineyards spread around Bad Duerkheim in Rheinland-Pfalz, the wine producer adores the Riesling grape.

No other grape is so sensitive and needs such intensive care. The grape harvest is
always done manually by the Pflueger family, which guarantees that only best matured grapes are selected.

All Pflueger champagnes are prepared in the classic bottle fermentation method, maturing gently for at least 9 months. Pflueger’s German champagne is an attitude of life. The different nuances of taste make their unique champagnes so delicious. 2007 was a very special vintage harvest resulting in wines with a distinct, fruity character and fine elegance.

Bergsträßer Winzer

Bergsträßer Winzer

The Bergsträsser WINZER eG, founded in 1904, had again a very satisfying harvest his year. In general, growing wine along the “mountain street” of the ancient Romans has a long tradition.

Known as “Germany’s Spring Garden”, as the vines grow well in the warm and sheltered south and west slopes of the Odenwald, the mountain is one of the warmest regions in Germany. The mild climate, the ideal soil, as well as steep slopes provide the best conditions for terrific quality wine production.

Riesling Ice Wine – Heppenheimer Stemmler 2001

Origin: Early Triassic sandstone occurs as geological peculiarity only in a small area in Heppenheim, known as the “Stone head” and the “Schloßberg”. The soils are very shallow, permeable and very rocky. Therefore, these locations have a rather low output, but because of their southern exposure almost always outstanding qualities. The Riesling is the King of the Bergstraesser grape varieties. The wine has grown to one of the best locations on the Bergstrasse: in the extremely steep slopes of the South side of the Heppenheimer Schlossberg below the Starkenburg. There, the finest Rieslings grow every year on hot and dry weathered soils of sandstone

Awards: In September 2004 the Riesling ice wine of 2001 from the “Heppenheimer Stemmler” received one of a total of just 13 Awards “Grand Gold” from “mundus vini”.
