Create Your Very Own Wine Tradition in the Heart of Hamburg
The wineBANK Hamburg, located in the historic building of the Alte Oberpostdirektion, offers you a golden opportunity to do just this. We have been operating in the upper echelons of the gastronomic world for decades and we are passionate wine lovers. A passion which we share with our wineBANKers.
When we heard about the wineBANK concept of VDP winemaker Christian Ress, we were immediately captivated. A Private Members’ Club for wine aficionados – something perfectly suited for Hamburg and its lively gourmet scene.
Come and discover our very own world of wine in one of Hamburg’s most iconic buildings and become a wineBANKer. We look forward to welcoming you.
We look forward to welcoming you.
Your Host in the wineBANK Hamburg
Johannes Leusch, Director and Club Manager
He loves Hamburg. The city, its unique features, the people who make this city what it is – the little things, the big things, its down-to-earth charm and its exclusive flair. He was born in Mainz but has chosen to make his home in Hamburg. Mainz is one of the 10 Great Wine Capitals of the world. Here, even as a child, Johannes Leusch helped with the grape harvest. He also loves the wine bars so typical of Mainz and he enjoys having countless wine makers in his circle of friends. He studied Business Administration and Political Science, in his home town and also in Alicante, Spain.
For him the wineBANK is the perfect concept, the ideal vehicle with which to connect wine lovers, to bring together fellow epicureans and to be a good host for friends. The Alte Oberpostdirektion is the ultimate place where a relaxed ambience can chime together in perfect harmony with Hanseatic elegance and a club culture.
During the last few years Johannes Leusch has been responsible for looking after cooperations involving the luxury liners MS Europa and MS Europa 2 with Hapag-Lloyd Cruises. His is a heart that sways to a hedonistic beat. His aim is to create innovative events and occasions at the wineBANK, tailor-made for pleasure seekers, in order to bring together interesting, fascinating people. Because even the best wines of the world seem insipid if you cannot savor them in good company.
Great wine, a relaxed atmosphere, enriching conversation – all of this reflects his private life, too. He loves drinking a glass of aged Riesling while preparing Argentinian steaks to perfection and then eating with friends at a long wooden table.
Johannes Leusch is looking forward to greeting you as a member of the wineBANK network of pure pleasure.
