The wineLAIR Concept

Businessman Christian Ress, known above all as the owner of the Balthasar Ress vineyards, dreamed up this concept and opened the first club in the region of Rheingau in 2009. Since then, additional locations in Basel, Vienna, Hamburg, Frankfurt, Cologne, Palma, Palatinate, Vienna and Mainz have been developed (known as wineBANK clubs).

Architecture, location & design

it is intended that every club develops its own individual style and unique signature.

Members have access to the elegant wine 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 wineLAIR is far from being just a place to store your liquid treasures. It is much more an elegant venue enabling a highly-individualized style of wine tasting, a haven that welcomes our Members and their guests at any time of the day or night.
