Sektkellerei Ohlig was founded in 1919 by Anton Ohlig in Rudesheim am Rhein in Germany, and he would be joined later by the Kloss family, all of whom had a passion for making high quality sparkling wines in the traditional method. Now in its fourth generation, as a friend and neighbor of Carl Ehrhard, they do not own vineyards but produce their Sekt (the term for sparking wines from Germany and Austria) from grapes or wine purchased from their neighbors like Weingut Carl Ehrhard, Weingut Walter Rapp, Weingut Mohr and Weingut Schlossmühlenhof – all of which are family-run and practice environmentally friendly farming but who don’t have the means to produce Sekt themselves. Their wines are stored for at least nine months in bottle, on the lees, in their century old cellar. The name ‘50 Degrees N’ refers to the latitude at which the vines are grown, geographically the northernmost possible wine growing area. This sparkling blend of müller-thurgau, silvaner, and pinot blanc is bright and vivacious with a soft texture and lively fruitiness, finishing dry.
