My story

I am probably not a typical winemaker.

 The region where I grew up alone does not allow for this profession. I am from East Westphalia. I come from a city that doesn't exist and after a few detours I now live on the Moselle. Detours is not quite right. Via Dortmund, Herford, Gütersloh, Bielefeld, Berlin, New Zealand and Hamburg, I have now found my actual dream job. I am a winemaker. I'm also a qualified car salesman, I've completed my vocational baccalaureate, I've studied and I'm now a bachelor in marketing management (Fachhochschule des Mittelstands). So I guess the question now is why I'm not sitting in a medium-sized company trying to push numbers, look as good as possible in my suit and dream of a fatter company car. Well, I guess the biggest fact is that I didn't enjoy it.The region where I grew up alone does not allow for this profession. I am from East Westphalia.

Another big push was my stay in New Zealand. I spent a year on a paradise island. At Stonyrige Vineyards, I was able to see many areas of a winery and said to myself, "I want that too." And we're not talking about owning a winery, but going to work every day happy and coming home happy too.

Off the edge.

So after my stay abroad, I made the courageous decision to throw everything away and train as a winemaker. At the famous Witwe Dr. Thanisch - Erben Müller Burggreaf winery, I was able to gain insight into every area of winemaking, try my hand and lend a hand. To finance all the fun, I also conducted tastings at one of the most traditional wineries in the Moselle, Villa Huesgen, and was allowed to look into the sales side. In April 2017, I had the opportunity to get to know Italian wine culture at the fascinating Tenuta San Leonardo winery.     

For me, there is nothing greater than following my passion every day. To make wines that inspire other people and hopefully make them happy.

My wish for the future is:

  • To inspire many people with my wines.
  • To design projects together with interesting wineries
  • Conjuring up ever better wines
  • Maybe one day owning my own vineyard by the sea or in the mountains

Wow, that was fast! 2020 is really a crazy year and one with a lot of contrasts for me! I'm writing the article about it right now. So stay tuned 🙂

Officially "on his own"

After working for wonderful winemakers for a few years, I took the leap to start my own wine brand in 2021. All an experiment made possible by my patrons and partners.
