Anyone who walks up the dark staircase through the small sandstone-framed door and and sees the candles by the famous lighting designer Ingo Maurer, which are constantly burning under the roof truss, is really curious about what awaits them behind the door to the suite on the second floor...
In the historic manor house of the family wine estate founded in 1870, the former residence of the famous Bishop of Mainz Heimes built long before the founding of the wine estate, Christian Ress has created a suite for two people with great attention to detail, where timeless design classics meet old walls. Equipped with original furniture by Ray & Charles Eames, USM Haller, Naoto Fukasawa as well as another luminaire by Ingo Maurer and an Arco luminaire by Achille Castiglioni - the Balthasar Ress-Suite offers an exquisite and an elegant atmosphere for overnight guests with high standards. Also available, of course: an international wine selection in the Gaggenau wine refrigerator with billing according to consumption. Entertainment is provided by the Bang & Olufsen TV and the Marshall music box. The bathroom with rain shower is equipped with Dornbracht fittings. The box spring double bed offers the highest sleeping comfort.
In the suite there is a "cold" kitchen with a refrigerator, dishes, cutlery, glasses, an espresso machine, a tea and an egg maker and much more to prepare little snacks in between.
The Balthasar Ress-Suite can be booked via Airbnb.
Access to wineBANK Rheingau included
Guests of the Balthasar Ress-Suite have access to the wineBANK Rheingau across the street via a membership card - the Private Members Club for wine lovers who store their wines there. Here one often meets interesting wine enthusiasts from the region. As a guest of the Suite and with a bottle of wine from the wine refrigerator, you almost feel like a member of the wineBANK for the duration of your stay.
