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 blossom (1781) and a rich grape harvest (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.

Dönnhoff Hermann - Arbeiten im Weinberg

The vineyards cover 28 hectares of vineyards in the single vineyard sites Kahlenberg, Krötenpfuhl,(Bad Kreuznach), Hermannshöhle and Klamm (Niederhausen), Dellchen and Kirschheck (Norheim), Brücke im Alleinbesitz and Leistenberg (Oberhausen), Höllenpfad (Roxheim) as well as Felsenberg (Schloßböckelheim). The vineyards are 80% Riesling and 10% each Pinot Gris and Pinot Blanc, some of which are 65 years old. The environmentally friendly and sustainable cultivation of the vineyards, the production and the sales are carried out according to the certified rules of the Fair'n Green association.

The wines are marketed according to the VDP classification model in the lines Gutsweine, single vineyards and Grosse Gewächse. Some of the fermentation takes place spontaneously with the winery's own yeasts in stainless steel tanks. The wines are then matured in traditional old large wooden barrels made of German oak. In years when the weather is suitable, ice wines are also produced. Around 180,000 bottles of wine are produced annually. The winery is a member of the VDP.
