Who we are

Family photo, September 2016

Hello! We are Melanie & Michael, a couple from Germany. After dedicating many years at university to Jewish studies (Melanie) and philosophy (Michael) we’ve been working in publishing for six years – in Heidelberg, Regensburg, London and New York – managing, marketing and selling digital products  (you can find more about Melanie here and about Michael here and here).

In June 2013 we left our work life behind and started making wine in Michael’s parents’ little winery in Kitzingen which has been in family hand since 1843. Also we got a little boy to joining our family in August 2013.

We love and admire simplistic design and real craftsmanship. We are passionate about creating authentic, unique high quality experiences and we want to share them. This philosophy and all we learned from our wonderful friends around the world is what we bring to our project.

The journey from London to Kitzingen, from the first months in the vineyards to our first wines, success and failure, all of that we would like to share with you and that’s what this blog is about.

We’ve met many people around the globe and we would like to share the story with all of them so that’s why we write it in English.
