Team

Our team consists of people who came from many different paths to work together with wine: some came with passion and curiosity, others with the courage and the desire to build something extraordinary. This is what bonds us. Some have been part of our team since the very beginning; others joined our team in 2013 with the acquisition of our new vineyard portfolio.

Annette & Steffen James Montigny

Montigny – for starters, this name doesn’t sound German at all. The Montignys originally came from France, to be more exact, from the protestant stronghold of the country. But this was quite a long time ago…

For over 300 years, my Huguenot ancestors fled France and found shelter in Germany. My father worked as a vine propagator at the end of the 1950s and later began practicing viticulture. This fascinating handcraft has interested me since I was a child.
