About us

Our History

In the year 2003, the visionary and pioneer, Dipl.-Ing. Oen. (FH) Carsten Heinemeyer laid the foundation stone for the 2B company. For over two decades, he shaped the wine industry with his passion and unshakeable belief in the power of nature. As a pioneer of minimalist winemaking, he set new standards and inspired many to follow his example.

Carsten Heinemeyer's professional career impressively reflects his love of wine. After training as a wine cooper in Breisach, his path led him to the renowned Geisenheim University of Applied Sciences, where he studied viticulture and oenology from 1992 to 1998. Before becoming self-employed, he gained valuable experience in the international wine industry as Marketing Manager for Wine, Fruit Juice & Spirits and as R&D Application Manager.

His life and work were always characterized by the search for natural, sustainable methods of winemaking. Until his sudden death in December 2023, Carsten Heinemeyer led the development of new oenological products with tireless dedication and creativity. His inexhaustible spirit of innovation and his deep understanding of the power of nature made him a unique personality in the world of wine.

Together with his dedicated team, Carsten Heinemeyer built up a global network that carried the 2B solutions around the world. The close cooperation with international sales partners made it possible to successfully establish the sustainable approach to winemaking globally according to the principle "LESS IS MORE". His visionary thinking and commitment led to continuous growth and success, which still drive the 2B family today.

In memory of Carsten Heinemeyer, the 2B team is continuing his life's work. With an awareness of his values and philosophy, the forward-looking company will continue to develop innovative solutions that meet the demands of markets and customers worldwide.
