Blue Nun, one of the world´s oldest German wine brands, was created in 1921 by H. Sichel Söhne. From there it has grown to international proportion becoming loved worldwide. In 1995, Sichel merged with Langguth. Domiciled in the city of Mainz on the Rhine, they have adopted the tradition of the monasteries of the Rhineland – from which the name Blue Nun is derived. The basis of the exceptional quality of Blue Nun wines are the grapes and the vintages from our own vineyards. Their unique method of processing the selected grapes, known as Sichel Superior Vinification, ensures that the high quality of the grapes is reflected in every glass of Blue Nun.
