about Us

One Hauck is never found alone

This is a family affair. With each of us on equal footing and supporting one another. With our hearts, hands and minds, our collective enthusiasm for wine is unwavering. We roll up our sleeves and share the load between us. Because of this, you’ll find our family fingerprint on each and every bottle of Hauck.

Our Roots

Our roots go deep with the earliest family records dating back to the year 1727. These origins lie in Bermersheim vor der Höhe, a small wine village in Rhinehessen and birthplace of St. Hildegard of Bingen (1098 – 1179). This is where our family belongs and where the family tradition of winemaking begun.

Dr. Jana Hauck

PhD in family businesses. And despite that education she herself has joined the family business! She is also on her way to a certificate in viticulture and oenology from Neustadt/Weinstraße. Jana is a passionate successor who loves combining her curiosity for knowledge with her wanderlust. Along the way she has collected practical experience in wineries in Germany and New Zealand.

Jana’s recommendation:
Auxerrois
(white wine — dry)

Heike Hauck

Holds family and business together. Great host and amazing chef. Without her, chaos would reign over of the office and farm. Besides that, not a single bottle of wine would arrive as quickly and with as much love to our customers.

Heike’s recommendation:
Pinot Noir Réserve (red wine — dry)

»Each vintage challenges us anew both in the vineyard and in the winery. It is our daily drive to take this in our stride and apply this wisdom.«

Heinz Günter Hauck

Our history

Up until the year 2000, our family farm was engaged in mixed farming for generations. The new millennium saw Heike and Heinz Günter make the courageous and pioneering move to focus on winegrowing. Today, we foster and cultivate about 140.000 vines that grow on 28 hectares of land. They are our babies of which we take the greatest care!

Our vineyards

Our vines grow on limestone, clay and loam-loess soils in the villages of Bermersheim vor der Höhe, Albig, and Ensheim in the middle of the wide region that is the Rhinehessen Hills. Here, we grow grapes that result in wines with fruit and minerality, with balance and finesse. Wines that each have our family’s fingerprint.

»You simply cannot produce good wine without a single-minded, fixation for it. One thing is for sure, we’re not lacking in the fanaticism department!«

Our varieties

We focus on the classic white varieties, Silvaner and Riesling. We’re curious people though and couldn’t resist planting some exotics! We also grow Auxerrois and Albariño. Our red varieties mainly consist of Pinot Noir (of which we make some white and rosé wine, too), St. Laurent, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon.

»The two most important things to consider each vintage is to be empathetic to the seasons and proceed gently.«

In the winery

This is where the craftsmanship and passion of two generations meet. With sensitivity, intuition, the highest standards and the gentle use of modern cellar technology, Jana and Heinz Günter work side by side to make our wines.
Our white wines are mainly fermented in stainless steel tanks and most reds enjoy an extensive cellaring in our oak barrels after fermentation.
