When a young couple – career-changers – ventures to take over a traditional wine estate with 250 years of history, a great deal of courage, passion and just-plain craziness must come into play. Yvonne Kessler and Martin Männer possessed all of these in splendid supply when they made the decision to acquire Weingut Blankenhorn. They have been managing this famous wine estate in the border-country triangle Germany-France-Switzerland since mid-2014; the two have already made extensive renovations, remodelled & modified, while setting a steady course toward further success.
