Just as much passion put Dirk Emmich and Antje Stamm in the careful restoration of the sales and tasting room and the wine cellar. In 2013, the two could also receive the architecture prize of the Chamber of Architects Rhineland-Palatinate.
"The restrained overall concept for the winery Neef-Emmich in Bermersheim stands for an exemplary handling of the found building substance in a clear, calm form language. The room for wine tasting with the refurbishment of the wine cellar and the wine storeroom, as well as with a comparatively small measure an interesting result can be achieved. "
From the jury evaluation
The couple won from their own point of view, completely surprising. "We did not expect to win with our relatively small winery and even overtake big projects," admits Antje Stamm modestly. She is all the more pleased that the refurbishment, which was largely based on her own ideas, not only met with approval from the jury, but was also received positively by the customers. In 2011 and 2012, the wine cellar and the former cow chapel, including the grounds, were restored in two phases. The architect Winfried Klein from Budenheim and his team are responsible for the implementation. During the renovation, both the winegrower couple and the architect attached importance to the preservation of the existing building structures.
"So immaculate, simple and beautiful, you can experience newly designed" cow chapels "- as the traditional cross-vaulted balls are also called, which have now become the popular features of Rheinhessen construction and wine culture - only rarely. "The former stable in Bermersheim, Rhineland-Palatinate, was used as part of a refurbishment over two construction stages to create a 45 m2 tasting room, whose purist décor makes an effective reference to the historic fabric of the building. In addition to colors, materials and materials were used, which are closely related to the
Viticulture, such as oak, mineral earth and lime. In the delightful contrast between the bright, material-emphasized ambience and the dark furnishing in the clear design, the room as well as the presentation of the products of the winery impress with a clear unaffected style. "
