Hemmes Frank

The winery is located in the municipality of Bingen-Kempten (Bingen area) in the German wine growing region of Rheinhessen. The traditional family has been growing wine here for over 100 years. In the 1960s, Friedel and Renate Hemmes converted the former mixed agricultural operation to viticulture. Today, it is managed by Frank Hemmes Felix, and his son Felix is responsible for the cellar after completing his studies. A vinotheque and a wine school, established in two former classrooms, are attached. Throughout the year there are farm festivals, literary wine tastings, wine walks, and events with wine and music.

The vineyards cover 20 hectares around the Rochusberg as well as in the individual vineyards Scharlachberg and Schlossberg-Schwätzerchen (Bingen).

The vines are grown in a natural, environmentally friendly manner, without the use of synthetic fertilizers and herbicides. The wines are produced with the aim of regional typicity. Depending on the type of wine, they are aged in stainless steel tanks, large wooden barrels or barriques. A sparkling wine is also produced.
