The next VDP.AUKTION.RÉSERVE will take place on Saturday, March 2nd, 2024.
The Charity wine
For more than 20 years, the Kloster Eberbach winery has supported regional, non-profit or charitable institutions with the charity wine proceeds totaling more than 90,000 euros. In 2022, our 1952 Assmannshäuser Höllenberg Spätburgunder Cabinet reached an auction price of 4,200 euros, which benefited the "Kindergartenburg" daycare center.
In 2023, the proceeds from a bottle of 1943 Assmannshäuser Höllenberg Spätburgunder Natur will benefit the project "Renovation of the construction wagons and reconstruction of the workshop" of the Kinder- und Jugendfarm Oestrich-Winkel e.V.
The wet auction
Shortly after the numerous guests have taken their seats in the laybrother's dormitory when the first wine is poured. A wet auction means that, except for the absolute rarities, every wine is poured! And now our auctioneer Ulrich Allendorf makes an appearance: With his hearty Rheingau manner, he presents our wines both informatively and humorously. Thus, the afternoon becomes a real experience in an unforgettable atmosphere!
Eberbach Monastery and the VDP Rheingau jointly auction their wines once a year. Selected rarities from the treasure troves of the Rheingau VDP.Wineries, great noble sweet wines and unique bottles in large formats are offered. In addition, wines vinified especially for the auction, which wear the name VDP.AUKTION.RÉSERVE are sold exclusively through the auction.
Blockchain technology secures auction wines
With the help of blockchain technology in combination with an NFC chip, the auction wines are secured and their authenticity is guaranteed. The production of a copy or reuse of the bottle is excluded. This innovative guarantee of authenticity represents a great added value for wine enthusiasts, collectors, retailers and also the wineries.
