The Dreissigacker Winery is one of the leading quality wineries in Rheinhessen. The company has meanwhile focused on purely organic viticulture. With the new production and wine presentation building, the winery has moved out of the centre of Bechtheim and expanded at the same time. For the architectural design of the buildings, an extensive analysis of the geographical and geological site factors was carried out, among other things. The design of the new building was also directly related to the sustainable business and brand concept of the winery. The solid timber roof construction with glued timber trusses is thus in harmony with the company’s near-natural production philosophy.

Cantilevered flat roof construction
made of wood
The new building of the Dreissigacker winery is a hybrid building with a construction of glulam elements and reinforced concrete. The building is structured in three levels and integrated into the mountain like a staircase in order to reduce cooling measures on the one hand and to ensure production transport by gravity instead of pumps on the other. The roof structure consists of 37 metre long glulam trusses cantilevering over 9 metres and X-LAM panels. A circumferential window strip forms the transition between the solid components and the roof structure projecting on all sides. This provides natural lighting for the production hall and warehouse.

The advantages of wood
at the Dreissigacker Winery
For the new buildings of the Dreissigacker winery, building materials were sought that integrate with the ecological and nature-oriented philosophy of the company. The natural and sustainable building material wood was therefore the appropriate choice. The flat roof construction allows for greening and the installation of PV systems and significantly reduces the necessary on-roof insulation. In addition, the timber construction with glulam trusses offers considerable support-free spans.
