Our winery is a traditional business that has been producing vibrant, powerful and lively wines for many years and I have been working on my goals and visions in the winery since 2005.
Passionate and with an affinity to nature, I create my wines by blending contemporary and traditional elements.
During the Thirty Years’ War (1618-1648) the Bettenheimer Hof near Sprendlingen was destroyed. This prompted our ancestors to look for a new home and through various periods and marriages they arrived in Ingelheim via Schwabenheim and Groß-Winternheim. In 1712 the foundation of today's winery was laid in the Stiegelgasse.
The winemaker and his goal
"To be a bit better every year with what nature provides."
As a husband and father, it is my desire to continue strengthening the winery for the previous and future generation and to constantly implement my own visions and ideas.
In New Zealand I learned how to reinterpret classic grape varieties and create individual wines. "A winemaker, like a father, must nurture and care for the vine so it can grow and bring its fruit to maturity."
For me, the most important thing to improve quality is to taste my own wines together with my family, colleagues and wine enthusiasts. Here, the wines are compared with other wines from Rheinhessen or from all over the world in terms of grape variety, terroir and vintage, and we philosophise about what else we can try in the future.
