Founded in 1984, Volker Raumland is a pioneer in German sparking wine and today is one of the very best producers. The estate focuses entirely on high quality sparkling production and does not make any still wines. Over the years, Volker Raumland’s skill and passion for German sparkling wine earned him the nickname of the Sektpapst, or the Pope of Sekt. Raumland’s dedication to high-quality German Sekt doesn’t stop at the estate. He is currently the president of the “Verband Traditioneller Sektmacher,” or the Association of Traditional Sparkling Winemakers.
Cuvée Katarina is named for one of Volker's daughters and is a blend of Pinot Noir and Meunier grapes grown on limestone soils.
