The traditional winery in the municipality of Oberhausen is located in the German wine-growing region of Nahe. The first records of the Dönnhoff family date back to 1761, and the family chronicle documents early grape blossoms (1781) and rich grape harvests (1784) in detail. The grandfather Herrmann Dönnhoff Senior (1880-1953) already had a great passion for Riesling and paid great attention to winemaking and the purchase of the best vineyards in the area. His son Hermann Dönnhoff Junior (1916-1991) continued this tradition. When Helmut Dönnhoff vinified his first vintage in 1971 at the age of 22, the business had already transformed into a pure winery. His saying "My vineyards are like my children" illustrates how much value is placed on meticulous vineyard work. After his training and various stays abroad, Cornelius Dönnhoff is now the fourth generation to run the business.
