What, Who and Why are we?
We are a boutique wine & spirits store located in Wyk on the island of Foehr in Northern Germany - very close to the Danish border. We carry wines of the world, sparkling wines, scotch whisky, bourbon whiskey, rum, grappa and other fine spirits. We also sell fine chocolates, olive oils, almonds, pasta, licorice, wine accessories and much more.
The "Weinhaus am Meer" (translates to "Wine House by the Ocean") was founded in 2015 by Nadja Roeloffs. Nadja grew up in the wine region of Baden in Southern Germany, near the cities of Strasbourg and Offenburg. She quickly noticed her passion and appreciation for wine during her apprenticeship in hospitality. After she finished her studies of Hotel Management in Hamburg, she moved to Beautiful Vancouver in British Columbia, Canada in 2008. This is where she took her first WSET course (Wine & Spirit Education Trust). From that day forward she knew that she wanted a career in wine & spirits. She returned to Germany in 2012 and moved to the island of Foehr in 2015, due to her husband's and her own family roots. In August 2015 she proudly opened the doors of the "Weinhaus am Meer". Nadja is also the owner of the "International Wine School", where she offers the WSET courses as an approved WSET programme provider (in German and English).
