Important German sparkling wine brand whose origins lie in a wine trade founded by Johann Friedrich Deinhard (1772-1827) in Koblenz in 1794. However, the family had already been cultivating wine in the Moselle region long before that. In a surviving document, he spoke very positively about the 1811 grape harvest, the wines of which developed in Germany into the "comet wine", the legendary 1811. From 1825, Deinhard wines were exported to England and the first foreign branch was founded there ten years later. The wines were shipped halfway around the world via the port of London. Anton Jordan (1804-1890), who was the only member of the staff to speak English, was responsible for this.
