Taste, enjoy, and purchase wine directly from the wine estate
Downtown Wiesbaden has yet another attraction: the Balthasar Ress Balthasar Ress Weinbar & Vinothek on Mauergasse - the flagship store of wine estate in the heart of Wiesbaden.
All Balthasar Ress wines (at ex cellar prices), a few selected wines from friends' estates, and choice culinary delicacies reflect the savvy, typicity, and charm of Wiesbaden and its surroundings. The verifiable origin of everything on offer is an important consideration. All of these handcrafted, high-quality products can be sampled here six days of the week in an ideal venue.
The exterior is an original, turn-of-the-century façade, while the interior is a modern lounge that was constructed with high-quality materials. The new Balthasar Ress wine bar and shop is designed to appeal to wine enthusiasts and bons vivants who want to drink and purchase wine in an attractive ambience. It's a new rendezvous for an enjoyable midday snack, a quick espresso, a shopping break or the start of an evening.
For guests who not only want to drink wine, but also experience it, the two managers on hand are thoroughly familiar with the many services Balthasar Ress provides. They can help arrange an extensive tasting of the wines on offer; book wine tastings or wine hikes; organize events at the estate's manor in Hattenheim; reserve a compartment in the wineBANK; lease a vine; etc.
In addition to its 140-year-old viticultural history, the Ress family has had considerable experience in the restaurant trade. The history of the wine estate began with Hotel Ress in Hattenheim, better known today as Kronenschlösschen. At the same time, the Ress family operated the renowned beer and wine restaurant "Mutter Engel" in Wiesbaden back in the 19th and 20th centuries - at the time, one of the best restaurants in Germany. Things have come full circle. Tradition and innovation, wine and gastronomy - the new Balthasar Ress Weinbar & Vinothek embodies pleasure and authenticity in a most enjoyable manner.
