Producer Profile

Max Dexheimer

Max Dexheimer, with a fond smile, gestures towards the barrel sample of his Pinot Noir, reflecting on the unique character of his vineyard's wine. Despite its intense concentration and smoky notes, he assures us it's not oak-induced; rather, it's the essence of the terroir itself. Inherited traditional Stückfass barrels, passed down through generations, play a pivotal role in shaping the wine's distinct personality. Max attributes this signature smokiness to the vineyard's rich, iron-laden soil, a distinguishing feature from his other plots. Nestled beneath his family's home lies his old cellar, where these wines mature, reflecting his unwavering commitment to quality. As a Pinot enthusiast, Max understands the importance of patience, allowing the wine ample time to evolve and soften.


Where The Wines Come From


Calling all wine lovers! Rheinhessen, Germany's biggest wine region, is like a fun, chilled-out party compared to other fancy wine areas. Here, rolling hillsides soaked with sunshine grow a dizzying variety of grapes, mainly white. Think refreshing Rieslings, crisp Silvaners, and even some playful newcomers. Don't be surprised if you hear about a Scheurebe or two – they were invented right here by a pioneering professor! Rheinhessen is all about experimentation and easy-drinking wines that'll make you want to linger under the summer sun with a glass in hand.
