Kuhling-Gillot and Battenfeld-Spanier represent two estates brought together by marriage but produced by one winemaking team in one cellar. Their focus is on producing great dry wines from top Rheinhessen vineyards with a minimum of intervention. In doing so they favour the savoury and the mineral over the overtly fruity.
The Kuhling-Gillot vineyards are located in the Northern Rheinhessen, close to the river, in the red slate heartland between the villages of Nackenheim and Oppenheim.
The estate is run to certified Biodynamic principals and without the use of fertilizer or pesticides. the Battenfeld-Spanier wines are all on limestone. the wines quiver with energy and cool minerality. The estate, run by the young, enthusiastic husband and wife team of Olivier and Carolin, is making some of Germany's most exciting dry wines
