Architecture creates a wine experience

Wine & Architecture

New rooms for the wine awaken great feelings and create positive memories. Here are a few examples of impressive new and newly used, traditional wine architecture.

Worldwide, the topic of wine architecture with spectacular new buildings provides a topic of conversation. But it does not always have to be the outstanding architecture on the green lawn, which astonishes the visitors. Sometimes it's just surprising looks or insights, when walking through the courtyard gate, when entering the wine shop, when looking into the barrel barrel cellar, which makes the visit to the winery so appealing. The combination of old and new in existing structures creates exciting impressions for the visitor.

It is sometimes amazing what ideas the winemakers from Rheinhessen develop in the conversion of empty buildings in the old village centers. But the very old buildings with their own charm offer a special atmosphere for event rooms or for setting up wine shops. They are also often a piece of lived village culture and with their new use ensure that the places do not die out.

Wine architecture in Rheinhessen

Here tradition meets modernity


The credo of Dirk Emmich: "For me, there is nothing better than to make wine" His passion is the traditional grape varieties such as Riesling, Burgundy and Silvaner. "Only the careful work in harmony with nature makes it possible to work out the particularity of each layer and each wine."

The yellow sandstone, a building material that was mined in Flonheim until the turn of the last century, is also the defining design element in the new guesthouse of the Dohlmühle vineyard of the Stütz family. A former shed has been converted into a guest house with 6 rooms and a modern spa area.


The winery Gysler is located in a traditional Rheinhessen Hofreite. At the front of the road is the house with a large courtyard gate. On the side are the former stables and across the entire width of the property is behind a large barn.

Winery Julius

In Wonnegau lies the small wine-growing community Gundheim. Just as small was the old fire station next to the winery of the Julius family. Georg Julius bought it years ago and initially used it as a warehouse. Now a very modern wine shop has been set up.

Exterior view Domhof

The traditional estate, formerly part of the cathedral chapter of the city of Worms, has been family-owned since 1874 and today is run by Chris and Alexander Baumann. Through refurbishment of existing buildings and additional new construction created the winery Domhof Baumann a contemporary and high-quality ambience.

Chateau Schembs

As part of a large overall project, the work of Arno Schembs of the same winery from Worms-Herrnsheim. Together with seven other heads, he refurbishes the outbuildings of the imposing castle complex of Worms-Herrnsheim in the initiative "Hauptsache Herrnsheim".


The winery Kühling-Gillot is a traditional VDP winery in the middle of Bodenheim. The biggest asset of the Gillot family is the generous garden planted with old trees. At the edge of it is the Art Nouveau villa, the home of the Gillot family.

Magarethenhof Schwabenheim

In the Margaretenhof of the Eckhard family in Schwabenheim, a Winzerhofcafé was opened in 2009, where the guest is spoiled with home-baked cakes, coffee, but also other culinary delights from the winegrower's kitchen in combination with a good glass of wine.
