Discover Riesling Wines

Riesling is known for being one of the most fragrant white wine grape types found across the globe. When made as a single-varietal, late-ripening wine, it is at its most expressive. Given Riesling's capacity to effectively convey Terroir, many of the best producers choose to add the name of the specific vineyard from where the wine was produced.

Historically, notable Riesling wine locations and producers have produced a varietal wine that represents the region's climate and terroir. Wines with luscious green, tree fruit aromas supported by apple blossom and lime will be produced by premium cooler-climate winemakers producing off-dry or dry Riesling. Riesling from premium moderate-climate growers has more stone-fruit forward notes (think white peach) with hints of banana, mango, melon, and even pineapple tastes.

Germany, Austria, France, and Canada are among of the most well-known premium Riesling-producing nations. However, the Riesling grape variety has its origins in Germany, particularly in the Rhine area, as the name implies. Riesling was first mentioned in the mid-1400s, and only a few decades later, proof of its existence was discovered in Alsace, France, where some of the best Riesling is being produced today.

About the Producer: Weingut Donnhoff

Weingut Dönnhoff is a property in the Nahe region of the Rhineland. He is often considered one of the best producers in Germany, known for the high quality of his wines, which are mainly made from Riesling. The wine portfolio includes wines from selected vineyards and wines from the estate, approximately 10,000 cases from each vintage. Dönnhoff is one of three German states to receive the Robert Parker 100 point mark for Riesling Eiswein vintages in 2001, 2002, 2004 and 2010. The property is located in Oberhausen, in the center of Riesling, in the district of Nahe. There are approximately 20 hectares (50 acres) of vineyards, a large part of which is owned by Erste Lage. About 80% of the production is made from Riesling grapes, grown in volcanic rocky soils, which give the wines a balanced acidity and intense minerality. The rest of Dönnoff's vineyards are dedicated to Pinot Blanc and Pinot Gris. They are planted in clayier, less rocky soils that hold more water during the summer. Winemaking in Dönnhoff is simple. After pressing all the bundles, decantation follows for 10-18 hours, fermenting in stainless steel barrels or tanks. After aging on the lees, the wines are filtered in March after harvest and bottled after a few months. The Dönnoff family has been producing wine in this region since the 1750s. However, since Helmut Dönnoff came to power in 1971, the estate has gradually grown from 4 hectares (10 acres) to its current size. His reputation grew to similar proportions. Robert Parker called Hellmuth a "superstar" and British writer Hugh Johnson "fanatically committed to quality and a remarkable natural talent for winemaking."
