Gault Millau has described Jürgen Hofmann as a "true jack-of-all-trades." And few would argue with that description of this jovial, perpetually active vintner! His wine portfolio, which has held three Gault Millau grapes continuously since 2010, is itself a reflection of his versatility. Alongside the Rheinhessen estate wines that he produces together with his wife Carolin, he is also part of the action at their shared estate on the Saar.
And that doesn’t even account for the many wine projects and cooperations that have arisen with his lively network of colleagues. Jürgen is known for a remarkable openness and honesty towards friends, customers and business partners, a way of life that has also served as a surprisingly effective motor for new ideas. Last but not least, he is seen as a pioneer in his region who recognized and promoted the potential of shell limestone and the Appenheim Hundertgulden vineyard early on.
