Simone Adams of Adams Wein in Rheinhessen

Simone Adams of Ingelheim in Rheinhessen talks to Heine Johansen about producing high quality pinot noir and chardonnay in Germany.

Having been responsible for the winemaking of Adams Wein since 2010, Simone has really lifted their wines to a top class level. In this interview she talks about some of the challenges, both of climate, market and confidence that german winemakers meet in producing and celling pinot and chardonnay. Not producing any riesling at their farm in Rheinhessen, Simone focuses on the burgundian grape varieties, but with a distinct german personality. She uses local clones and believes in finding a true German identity for her wines.
