At the "Auktion Réserve" of the VDP in Kloster Eberbach (Rheingau), a Balthazar large bottle (12l) of the top wine "Monte Vacano" from the Rheingau VDP winery Robert Weil was auctioned for 18,000 euros to an unknown bidder. In addition, other rarities went under the hammer at top prices: a bottle of 1921 Erbacher Marcobrunn Riesling Trockenbeerenauslese from the Kloster Eberbach winery achieved the second-highest result at 15,000 euros. A total of 4181 wines were auctioned, which generated auction proceeds of just under 255,000 euros.
45 auction lots from 13 Rheingau VDP wineries went under the hammer, including Rieslings, late and early Burgundies. Even large formats such as the Balthazar of the 2019 "Goethewein aus dem Brentanohaus" found a new owner. This unique specimen with an artist's label from Weingut Allendorf fetched 6,300 euros. The 6-litre Methusalem of the 2009 Assmannshäuser Höllenberg Spätburgunder from the Kloster Eberbach winery fetched 3,600 euros.
The Geheimrat J. Wegeler wineries were also back after a break of several years. They immediately caused a stir with lots such as a 10-magnum vertical of the Geheimrat "J" from the vintages 2010 to 2019. The box of the Geheimrat J. Wegeler wineries fetched the price of 5,000 euros. Weingut Künstler also auctioned off a 6-bottle case of Hochheim rarities including a 1997 Hochheimer Hölle Riesling Eiswein for a total of 2,300 euros. Among the red wines, a case of Assmannshäuser Höllenberg Spätburgunder GG from Weingut August Kesseler from 2012, 2015 and 2016 was presented to the highest bidder at an auction price of 3,600 euros.
