Max Dexheimer & his partner Marika (an Estonian sommelier and entrepreneur who came for the harvest and stayed because of love.)

Max is a 5th generation winemaker – the winery in Saulheim was founded by his great-grandfather in 1896, and the family still makes a bit of wine under the historic Walldorf label. The family also runs a traditional restaurant that carries the same name and is presided over by Max’s 90-year-old grandmother.

The intriguing labels are all cut out of one big painting made by Max’s friend, representing the energy that he’s feeling when working in the vineyards.
