The winery of the winemaking Hirt-Gebhardt family has its origins in the centre of the tradition-steeped wine village Martinsthal in the Rheingau district. Christian Gebhardt Junior is now running the family business in the seventh generation. In order to keep pace with structural changes and further developments in winegrowing, the family decided to move from the cramped location in in the village to the Sonnenberg hill near Eltville. The modern vinothek with a large outdoor terrace in the middle of the vineyard has now been there for around three years.
"We have been preoccupied with sun shading and weather protection solutions ever since we moved to the Sonnenberg. After taking part in the Gastronomy Day during R+T digital, we finally decided to actually put this topic into practice.
The right partner for the winery's requirements was quickly found. The winegrower family chose BAHAMA, as they have been using sunshades of this manufacturer for over 35 years and wanted to fall back on their proven quality.
