I have often been asked how I can handle two jobs – growing and producing my own wine, while working full-time for the winery Bernhard Huber in Malterdingen. This can be found in my childhood. For many years my family has farmed their own vegetable garden based on ecological principles. I learned early on that a garden means a lot of hard work and commitment.

My passion for farming aroused back then.  After my graduation, I was sure I wanted to learn a trade that would allow me to follow my love for nature. Therefore, I started my career as a winegrower with a vocational training at the winery Hügle in Bombach. After I finished my training, I started working for the winery Bernhard Huber, where I am still working today.

In 2008, my friend Yqeum Viehhauser and I came up with the idea to make our own red wine. Our ambition was and still is to make a high quality, fruity and full-bodied, organic wine. Just two year later we bottled our first Pinot Noir. In 2012 I spent nine months in New Zealand to gain some international experience. I had the chance to work at Felton Road, which is a winery that works by biodynamic principles.

Back then, the idea of starting my own winery solidified and when I returned I started to build up the “Wein-Werkstatt Daniel Bach”.

I still have a close bond to our vegetable garden. So I spend my leisure time working there with my Mum, my siblings as well as friends. It’s a great joy for me to work with family and friends and as a reward we harvest numerous, high quality produce.
