Andreas Bender

Germany


Making wines in both Mosel and in the Pfalz, winemaker Andreas Bender displays an unerring capacity to create a compelling balance of fruit and acidity. In his work philosophy Bender combines high quality, a sense of good soils and premium grapes, gentle cellar work, old vineyard crafts and new, modern “wine-thinking.”

In his family home, he pulls out wines that he “made for myself” just to see what he could produce. As we taste a 12-year-old late harvest, he recalls some ridiculed him. This is not happening anymore as within a very short period of time he has established himself as one of the most talented and capable “mavericks” of the German wine world. His wines grace the table of Chancellor Angela Merkel, whenever she wants to show her international guests the superb quality German artisanal producers can offer, and they can also be found in Lufthansa’s business class service as well as Gordon Ramsey’s restaurants.
