Westwind Weine / Hein Winery
Protection and preservation of cultural landscape – this is a core topic which the Hein winery has committed itself to. In order to transfer the sustainability of the vineyard to the winery, the wine house building was built under the aspects of sustainability in 2015: vacant vault cellars were integrated into the building, old staves were supplied for new usage as panelling. Beside several solar systems for generation of electricity also a wood chipping heating system with grapevine is run to take account of the sustainability character.
Westwind wines reside at and inside the tower of the newly built wine house of the Hein winery: This raises in a fresh green as the counterpart of the medieval living tower and the defense tower on the opposite side which has been guarding the entrance to the Zellertal in Wachenheim for more than 10 centuries. From each floor of the building a new facade of the cultural landscape can be admired while enjoying wines – culminating in a beautiful panorama view on the terrace which reaches down to the Zellertal.
