The winery in the municipality Oberhausen is located in the German wine-growing region Near
, Viticulture has been practiced in the family for at least two hundred years. The grandfather Herrmann Dönnhoff Senior 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 continued this tradition. When Helmut Dönnhoff vinified his first vintage at the age of 22 in 1971, the company had already become a pure winery. This is undisputedly one of the absolute top winemakers in Germany today and is a living legend. His saying "My vineyards are like my children"
illustrates how much emphasis is placed on meticulous vineyard work.
