Guided tour “Traditional bottle fermentation”

Experience sparkling wine craft and test 3 premium sparkling wines: € 18

Sparkling wine production is a very special craft that has always been fostered and developed further in our wine cellars. Yet how, exactly, do selected grapes turn into sparkling enjoyment? We would like to share this experience with you. We start our guided tour in the marble hall, where you have the possibility of experiencing traditional bottle fermentation up close and personal. And, at the latest during the manufacturing of the sparkling wine, we will also make this process tangible for you.

Everything begins with a tirage filling and subsequent fermentation in the bottle. It then lands in the riddling rack. Here the yeast settles in the bottleneck as a result of continuous rotation. Have you ever seen how yeast freezes? This is what happens in the following ice bath, and it is necessary in order to remove it. This procedure is referred to as disgorgement. Following the tirage liqueur, which gives the sparkling wine the desired flavour, as well as the corking and wiring, we extend a warm invitation to you to come and try the result for yourself.
The guided tour ends with a visit to our Henkell shop.
