Just as before in Reims, Georg Christian von Kessler also had to grapple with an explosive problem in Esslingen; the wine bottles of the time often couldn’t withstand the pressure caused by the wine’s fermentation from the yeast and the sugar, causing them to explode. This meant that half of all produced wine went to waste. In addition to the potential risk to workers, the financial losses were so great that Kessler began working with Glashütte Buhlbach to create a new bottle that could withstand the pressure. In its 190th year, there is now a new bottle that has been designed exclusively for KESSLER. Markedly classical in shape, and much heavier than standard sparkling wine bottles, the bottle captivates with its glass relief featuring the founding year 1826 and the great comet. The comet represents the exceptional 1811 vintage wine, in whose creation the company founder played a crucial role at his former champagne hause in Reims. At the turn of the 20th century, this comet continued to appear on numerous KESSLER labels and stamps. Hence a close connection with the tradition would still be felt long after Kessler’s death in 1842; the tradition that Kessler brought with him from Reims to Esslingen.
