The businessman Christian Ress, known above all as the owner of the Balthasar Ress vineyards, dreamed up this concept and opened the first wineBANK in the region of Rheingau in 2009. Since then further location in Basel, Vienna, Hamburg, Frankfurt, Wachenheim, Mainz and Basel have been developed. Architecture, location and design – it is intended that every wineBANK develops its own individual style and unique signature.
The so-called wineBANKers rent one of the compartments in the elegant vaults and can then store their own wines there under perfect climatic conditions. Insurance covering theft, vandalism and fire is included. We are even well armed to combat those troublesome cork moths.
Designer furniture, branded wine glasses, a lighting concept that creates a feel-good atmosphere, discreet background music – the wineBANK is far from being just a place to store your liquid treasures. It is much more a classy venue enabling a highly-individualized style of wine tasting, a haven that welcomes wineBANKers and their guests at any time of the day or night.
We want you to feel at ease when you are entertaining your guests in the wineBANK. A well-stocked tasting counter with all the appropriate wine and water glasses, wine coolers, decanters and a good supply of mineral water ensure that you can savor everything in style.
A wineBANK Member’s Card grants you access to ALL other wineBANK locations. Business people can consequently receive clients and partners in several destinations.
