Nahe grower Dönnhoff would be in most people’s top 10 in German dry Riesling. The estate dates back to 1750. Helmut Dönnhoff has recently ceded his place to his son Cornelius but he remains very much a part of the furniture. There are 25ha of vines grown on a mixture of slate, sandstone and the volcanic soils so typical of this part of the Nahe. The best wines are from sites such as Niederhäuser Hermannshöhle, Norheimer Dellchen and Schlossböckelheimer Felsenberg.
