Dönnhoff Hermann

The traditional winery in the municipality of Oberhausen is located in the German Nahe wine region. The first records of the Dönnhoff family date back to 1761. The family chronicle documents in detail early grape blossoming (1781) and a rich grape harvest (1784). Already the grandfather Herrmann Dönnhoff Senior (1880-1953) had a great passion for Riesling and paid great attention to winemaking and the acquisition of the best sites 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 importance is attached to meticulous vineyard work. After his training and various stays abroad, the business is now managed in the fourth generation by Cornelius Dönnhoff.
