Born on a wine farm, Heinrich made his first wine at the age of 8 years. Already then he knwe he wanted to do nothing else. When he was 14 years old, he could wait no longer. He left school and headed for France to learn from the best, ended up at the tradition-rich Domaine Bouchard Père et Fils in Beaune, at the time purveyors of quality wine to the English Royal Court, and stayed five years to learn everything there was to learn about winemaking. Already in his second year in France his Burgundy won a gold medal at a competition in Paris. In 1972, when he was only 24 years old, he bought a wine farm close to the town of Ellerstadt, in the German state of Palatinate. At the age of 25 years his wines were served on Lufthansa flights. Forty years later, he still lives on the winery with his family – still driven by his heritage and passion to make excellent wines. Today Weingut Heinrich Vollmer is a 200-hectare wine estate, where Heinrich, his daughter Eva and his team produce high quality white and red wines. Visitors taste and buy wines in the landmark tower on the wine estate. After Heinrich Vollmer had miraculously recovered from an illness in the eighties, he built the octagonal tower “as a monument to God”.

  • A crisp, refreshing artfully balanced Riesling from the sunny vineyards of the Palatinate region. The region is also called “German Tuscany” because of the warm and dry climate.
