Christmann & Kauffmann
The German-French Christmann and Kauffmann families are united by a grand vision. Sparkling wine from the top vineyard sites in the Palatinate, on a par with the best sparkling wines in the world. Mathieu Kauffmann from Alsace, who made his home in the Palatinate after many years working in the Champagne region, is convinced that the conditions here are ideal. Steffen and Sophie Christmann's deep knowledge of the vineyards in and around Gimmeldingen is the second important building block. Distinct artisanal sparkling wines are now being produced from 12 hectares of vineyards. Their first respect-certified sparkling wine (the 2022 vintage) is expected to be on the market in 2025.
„The greatest wines in the world are made in singular, living vineyards.“
The Christmanns and Kauffmann are respekt members because you can only progress together with other quality enthusiasts.
