The winery is located in the community of Durbach (Ortenau area) in the German Baden
wine region. It was already mentioned in 1561 and has been in family ownership for over 100 years. The foundation stone was laid in 1919 by Andreas Männle, who gave the estate its name, and today the business is managed in the third generation by Inge and Alfred Männle. The vineyards cover 14.5 hectares of vineyards in the Durbacher Bienengarten, which is in exclusive ownership. It is documented that the "Bennengarten" was already used for wine growing more than 400 years ago. Here, mainly Pinot Noir and Klingelberger
(Riesling), as well as the varieties Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc, Clevner (Traminer), Müller-Thurgau, Gewürztraminer, Chardonnay and Scheurebe are cultivated. After cool, controlled fermentation in stainless steel or barrique, the wines are stored on the fine lees for up to 12 months. After gentle, aroma-preserving filtration, they are bottled. Bottle-fermented sparkling wines and fine spirits (fruit, marc) are also produced.
