Nothing is more constant

than change

Of course, the sites as well as the distinctive character of a wine-growing region are strongly influential factors for the wine.

But most important are the people who run the winery and picture it as their center of life. Their dedication to the craft, their love for wine, their sense of being at home in the cellar and the vineyard, is the most defining part of what we call terroir. As generations of cellar masters come and go, so does the style of wines, even though the "basic recipe" of winemaking has virtually remained unchanged for 8000 years. Especially now, when having the ninth generation replaced by the ninth at the Hammel Winery, you can feel and taste this change. With us, the fire is carried forward and the ashes won’t be preserved.

The feeling for nature, the unique sites in the Rhine Valley of the Palatinate area, the willpower to put quality into bottles is the basic prerequisite for our expressive and characterful wines.

"The foundation of the winery is not the vineyards, the historic wine cellar or the old wine barrels. It is the people! It is the family, and it is the employees who, driven together by the fun and the great love for the wine and the homeland, go every day into the vineyards and cellar, with pure joy."


The team

You don´t make good wine alone

You can imagine a winery like a passenger ship on a great voyage. On the ship, many people - each individually specialized - ensure a safe, comfortable, and unforgettably beautiful journey. From the bridge to the engine room to the kitchen, hotel, and entertainment team - on the ship, people work together, hand-in-hand. The winemaking family and team sit together in one boat making where they make hierarchies not a priority.

The course is clear: We want to make "wine lovers" happy.

Our team introduces itself, so that you can get a personal picture of the people who create the delicious HAMMEL wines every year.

Our history

With tradition into the future

It's enough to give you goose bumps: 300 years, nine generations. Families, people, and individual fates in the course of time. Great happiness and deep sorrow, days full of confidence and euphoria and hours of doubt and fear. Embracing life and making the best of it, whatever may come, is our philosophy. For generations, we have been motivated by the certainty that everyone can make their own luck. This is the spirit of what enables us to always go forward with love, will and hope.

The change of generations is like a glass of wine that never empties.
