About the Anselmann Winery
The first documented mention of the Anselmann family dates back to 1126. For centuries, the family has been associated with viticulture and rooted in Edesheim in the southern Palatinate. With the outstanding 1959 vintage, Werner Anselmann, father of the current owners, intensified bottled wine marketing. The winery is one of the largest private wineries in Germany.
Today, the winery with a vineyard area of a good 150 hectares is managed by the siblings Ralf and Ruth Anselmann.
The vineyards are cultivated by well-trained staff with a lot of manual work in a natural and sustainable way. Hand harvesting is still of great importance. Every year, a team of about 30 harvests the grapes by hand in most of the Anselmann vineyards. The fully ripe grapes are processed gently and with the help of the latest technology, so that the aromas typical of the variety are preserved. Graduate agricultural engineer Ralf Anselmann (Winemaker of the Year 2010, DLG) attaches great importance to the authenticity of his wines. That is why bottling and bottle fitting take place entirely on the estate's own premises.
The result is high-quality wines of international standard. This is proven by the high awards and distinctions at national and international competitions. Many social events and sporting events are celebrated with Anselmann wines.
Since the Olympic Games in Sydney 2000, the Anselmann family has been supplying the "German House" with its wines. As Official Partner and exclusive wine supplier since the London 2012 Games, the Anselmann winery will again supply the "German House" and the "German House Paralympics" with its wines in Paris 2024.
