The Weingut Donnhoff estate is located in the Nahe region of the Rhineland where the Donnhoff family have been producing wine for over 200 years. The modern story starts in 1971 when Helmut Donnhoff took over management of the estate and expanded the vineyard area from 4 hectares to its current 25 hectares of Erste Lage vineyards, as well as bringing international recognition. Helmut creates wines by instinct, preferring to avoid modern analytics and rely on what can be seen and tasted in both wine and grape. This attitude has been passed on to his son, Cornelius. Both Donnhoffs have incredible admiration for the land on which their vines grow and admit that great winemakers can only preserve the quality of the harvest!
