Major success for Henkell at the spring tasting of the Berliner Wine Trophy 2016. Henkell Trocken, Henkell Brut, Henkell Halbtrocken and Henkell Rosé were also awarded gold medals.
The luxury, limited White Edition of Henkell Blanc de Blancs has been drawing admiring glances on the sparkling wine shelves since October 2015. Only limited quantities of the fine, pearly, fruity, sparkling Blanc de Blancs variety are available in the trendy, high-quality, coated white bottle.
Modern extensions of the product range are shaping the current millennium. With new creations taking in current sparkling wine trends, the brand is always keeping up with the times.
However, Henkell presents itself in an entirely new design in 2014: A new and expressive image gives the entire Henkell product line a fresh and modern look.
Henkell was the official sparkling wine for the winners at the German residence at the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing, at the 2010 Olympic Games in Vancouver and at the 2012 London Games.
Moreover, at the Olympic Winter Games in Sochi in 2014, Henkell was again the sparkling wine with which the German medallists were honoured and celebrated.
Henkell & Co. celebrated the 175th anniversary of its winery.
The company celebrates “150 years of Henkell Sparkling Wine“.
Otto Henkell II, who took the helm in 1945, was not only able to revive the company but also established the Henkell brand as a generic term for German sparkling wine.
The “Gentleman in Black” becomes the trademark and symbol of Henkell Trocken.
Henkell pursued a consistent brand policy with an “advertising budget” of 100,000 Marks.
Henkell & Co. is the market leader on the sparkling wine market in Germany and abroad.
In 1856, Adam Henkell launched the production of sparkling wine. His grandson Otto (1869-1929) achieved the breakthrough on the national and international market with the first branded sparkling wine – Henkell Trocken – at the end of the 19th century.
Our success story began with a wine lover: Adam Henkell (1801-1866), the founder of what is today Henkell & Co. henkei KG, opened a wine store in Mainz in 1832.
