Volker Raumland founded the sparkling wine estate in 1984. Since 1990 the family has lived in the former Wilhelminian style villa of the furniture manufacturer Merkel in Flörsheim-Dalsheim.
Volker Raumland focused on the Burgundy varieties at an early stage. Today 80% of the 10 hectares of vineyards in Rheinhessen and the Palatinate are planted with Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The Estate has been eco-certified since 2002. The top vineyard sites of the Sekthaus are the vineyards BÜRGEL, KIRCHENSTÜCK (Hohen-Sülzen) and FRAUENBERG, which are classified as VDP.GROSSEN LAGE®.
With his two daughters Marie-Luise and Katharina, the next generation is already in the starting blocks.
Philipp Wittmann, the former regional chairman of the VDP.Rheinhessen, is pleased about the new addition:
"Volker Raumland has always been a master of German sparkling wine. It is an enrichment for the VDP.Rheinhessen.
