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.
