Producer Information: Donnhoff Estate

Dönnhoff is a legendary name to fans of German wine, and is recognized by many to be the best estate in the Nahe region. The grandchild of the estate‘s founder, Helmut Dönnhoff, has been making the wine here since 1971 and has continued to add parcels of vines from top sites to the estate’s vineyards. He’s a traditionalist, and vinifies his wines in large oak casks.

A fourth generation now holds the reins. Cornelius Dönnhoff. He began his training in 1999 and, after a series of positions abroad, in 2007 returned to assume responsibility for the estate – initially for the vineyard and cellar, and now for all aspects of the operation. History continues, but the estate remains what it has always been. a family affair in every sense.

With its nine Große Lagen, counted among the absolute finest in the region, the estate today enjoys an excellent international reputation for its grand German Rieslings.
