We are a German/Portuguese team working closely together.
On the Portuguese side, Helena Manuel, a trained agricultural engineer, oversees the farm as a farm manager, supported by Marta Pereira, who oversees winemaking as an oenologist. The two are your local contacts. They are supported in the daily farm work by eight long-term permanent employees, some of whom live on the farm and are all closely involved in the local community. We strongly support the fact that the team consists of 50% women and 50% men.
On the German side, Antje and Thorsten Kreikenbaum are active as managing partners. Antje Kreikenbaum is also your contact for international sales and the sales office in Bremen.
New to the team is our son Jannes Kreikenbaum, who presents our wines at trade fairs and supports Helena and Marta in the various areas of winemaking.
Carsten Heinemeyer, a trained oenologist from Geissenheim, advises us on all questions of organic wine-growing and the vinification of wines.
Together we are in constant creative exchange and try to make the most of the existing circumstances in the team.
