Kuhling Gillot is located in the town of Bodenheim in the Nierstien area of the Rheinhessen wine-growing region of Germany. In its present form, it came about by marriage in 1970 when two of the regions oldest and most established wineries Kuhling and Gillot joined forces. Carolin Spanier-Gillot who has been responsible for winemaking since 2002 is regarded both at home and internationally as one of Germanys most talented winemakers and viticulturalists. In 2014 she took out Germanys winemaker of the year becoming the first female to take out this prestigious prize. What has made Caroline's work so special is her dedication in the vineyard and experimentation in the cellar.
Five different wine villages and five different soil types inspired the creation of the Latin term Qvinterra. The name indicates that our estate owns vineyards in the five famous villages on the Rhine Terrace: Oppenheim, Nierstein, Nackenheim, Bodenheim, and Laubenheim.
