Antonie Pietsch, immigrant to the Rheingau region and first winemaker in the family, began her apprenticeship in viticulture in the Palatinate in 1985, despite the lack of a family background in viticulture. She then studied viticulture and beverage technology (oenology) in Geisenheim. Various professional positions, such as the German Wine Institute in Mainz, editorial work for a specialist magazine, freelance work at Johannisberg Castle, ultimately led her back to the Rheingau.
For her the "Bacchus Speicher" is a unique winery: due to its exclusive location in the middle of the vineyards of the Rhine-Main area and, above all, the realization of a great dream. And although setting up your own winery is a very difficult project at first, it pays off twice over today thanks to its unique ambience, in which it is simply fun to make new friends and enjoy the new wines.
The trained economist supported his wife from the very beginning with great enthusiasm and joy in the design of the winery. For him, the Bacchus Speicher winery is not only a fascinating family project, but also the realization of a long-standing dream:
To create an environment in which people can enjoy wine together in good company.
