“K” stands for Konrad. Antoine Konrad from Basel enjoys international fame as DJ Antoine, rocking some of the world’s biggest stages and the global music charts. But his latest passion is… wine and champagne! And he wouldn’t be Antoine if he didn’t want to make it right to the top with his new ‘baby’ as well. His passion for wine was ignited in 2004. Antoine: “The winemaker Martin Donatsch from Graubünden asked me to be an ambassador for his Chardonnay Unique. Upon visiting his wine cellar, I realised that I would like to have my own wine label one day.
I’ve owned a house in Burgundy for almost twenty years. It’s always been a perfect source of inspiration to me. I appreciate the fine things in life, and I like to share. I enjoy inviting guests over and, above all, holding stimulating conversations around a big table. It’s something that I’m passionate about. It’s how new friendships are formed. And it also allows me to share our lifestyle.”
What started out in 2011 at a long wine-tasting session with Norbert Spielmann in the German town of Wertheim has since evolved into a diverse and impressive product range. The Konrad wines and champagnes are made at some of the best wineries in Europe. The first Swiss restaurants began serving Konrad wines in 2017, marking the start of this success story. “My wines and champagnes have a unique character – that’s important to me.”
