She is responsible for the administration, selling, marketing, presentation, entertainment, and event management of Weingut Carolin Spanier-Gillot & HO Spanier...". March 2013 Wine Club Selection

Kühling-Gillot has over 200 years of viticultural history in the town of Bodenheim through both the Kühling and Gillot families. Today, the family has vineyard holdings in some of the most important sites in the Rheinhessen: Sackträger, Pettenthal and Oelberg. For generations, women have run Kuehling-Gillot. This tradition continues today with Carolin Spanier-Gillot who took control of the winery in 2002. The co-founder of the Message in a Bottle association of young winegrowers and an active member of the Vinissima, Carolin is a dynamic winemaker who is full of creativity and energy. She has initiated a program of sustainable agriculture in accordance with biodynamic principals. In 2006, she married Oliver Spanier of BattenfeldSpanier and in 2007 they had their first child. Together, they are comitted to leaving a legacy of healthy soil and great wines.

Rheinhessen is the German wine region that boasts the highest number of sunshine hours per year as well as the best conditions for grape growing with very low humidity, and it is here that many new grape varieties were bred in the early 1900s.
