Weingut Hemmes

Das Famienunternehmen Hemmes setzt konsequent auf nachhaltige Konzepte. So wurde das ehemalige Schulhaus im Zentrum des Dorfes restauriert und zu einer Weinschule mit moderner Vinothek, eigener Küche und Raum für Präsentationen, Veranstaltungen und Feierlichkeiten umgebaut. Hierdurch wurde ein Stück Dorfgeschichte bewahrt, das heute durch Geothermie umweltfreundlich mit Energie versorgt wird.

Weingut Hemmes

The Hemmes family, innovative owners of a wine estate in Bingen-Kempten, has extended the idea of sustainability from vineyards to the local environment. They have restored a former schoolhouse, a listed historic building, in the heart of the village, and converted it into a wine school with tasting rooms, a professional kitchen, and areas for presentations, readings or celebrations. Not only has this preserved a key piece of history, but energy is supplied to the building by geothermal heat.
