About the Winery:
The VAUX story began in 1868 with the founding of Schloss VAUX in Berlin. The company spent the next years growing itself into a notable German Sekt producer, acquiring Château VAUX on the Moselle near Metz and thereafter an extended network of vineyards.

For fifty years Château VAUX was also home to the company’s sparkling wine cellar. In the turbulent period that followed, the region became part of France and the owners were forced to sell the property. They relocated to Eltville on the Rhine. Since then, Schloss VAUX has specialized in producing fine sparkling wines in the Rheingau style.

Schloss VAUX stands for uncompromising handcraftsmanship of sparkling wines made solely in the méthode traditionnelle (bottle fermentation).
