„Nature writes the script and I am the director.“
The vineyards are cultivated organically out of a sense of responsibility towards the environment. On the vine, the right actions at the right time are my guarantee for a high quality of the grapes.
A contribution to the ecological cultivation is also taken care of by our sheep. In winter they graze between the vines and fertilize our vineyards, in a natural way.
„Actionism in the vineyard and minimalism in the cellar.“
The aim is to gently process the hand-picked grapes in the cellar and to preserve the harvested quality. The art is to bring the manifold aromas of the grape into the bottle.
A modern technical equipment in connection with my long experience and my intuition are the key for my highquality wines.
In order to preserve the quality of the wines after bottling, I decided to use the stoneware bottle. In this way the wines are particularly protected from negative environmental influences, as stoneware is absolutely light proof and it protects the wine from strong temperature change.
Born in Southern Palatinate as the son of a fourth-generation winemaking family. After my education as a carpenter and winemaker, I managed my parents‘ business for many years. In 2004, my path as a winemaker led me to the beautiful sunny island of Mallorca. Within a short period of time I was able to achieve various awards for my wines due to my experiences on my parents‘ winery. The success of the wines encouraged me to produce my own wine.
Since 2016 I have been able to realize my dream with the winery Mandia-Vell.

In my precious free time, I enjoy driving around the island in our vintage car with my wife Susanne or taking long walks on the beach with our two dogs Greta and Schorsch.
