As the most important wine trading city north of the Alps, Cologne was a crucial hub for wine and fine living as far back as the Middle Ages. The wineBANK preserves a piece of this tradition by offering wine fans an exclusive meeting point in the heart of the city. Share remarkable gourmet experiences at the largest wineBANK to date.

wineBANK Cologne – Inspired by the spirit of fine wine

The historic vaulted cellars of what was once the Weingut Otto Engels estate has been meticulously restored by the Frey brothers as the foundation for the wineBANK Köln. The wineBANK holds a special spot among the brothers’ various construction projects, and visitors can immediately see why — it’s hard to believe that such a thing can exist on Ebertplatz, at the beating heart of Cologne. Here, in the very spot where wine was once stored, you can now gather in a fine atmosphere with fellow friends of the good life and draw inspiration from the spirit of good wine. Start your own tradition with one of the 351 lockers or 5 private cellars, with space for roughly 48,000 bottles. Special wine events open your doors to the world’s finest wine estates. We look forward to welcoming you!

Excellent connection: Wine & Culture

Cologne is close to both the Ahr and Mittelrhein growing regions, and long had more than just symbolic ties to Germany’s wine strongholds. Thanks to its location in the city center of Cologne, a visit to the wineBANK is easily combined with a variety of cultural and societal events. If something is happening in the bustling metropolis of Cologne, it’s probably not far from our doors.
