is located in the town of Westhofen, southwest of Frankfurt, in southern Rhinehessen. The Wittmanns and their ancestors have been wine growers in this region for centuries, with documents tracing the family’s wine history as far back as 1663.
In 1990, Weingut Wittmann converted its vineyards to organic growing and it has also been working biodynamically since 2004. The estate’s vineyards lie in four different areas: Aulerde (the warmest) Kierchspiel (a plot with a high limestone content which opens out onto the Rhine in the form of an amphitheatre), Brunnenhauschen (the highest plot) and Morstein (a parcel of vines which has been recognised since 1282). The estate’s best Rieslings are planted in these plots. The entire Weingut Wittmann vineyards grow on gently-sloping hillsides.
Harvesting by hand, gentle pressing, fermentation with native yeasts, fermentation and ageing in large, used barrels, the Wittmanns are part of a movement referred to as "modernist" because they have opted to produce wines with a higher alcohol content and lower residual sugar.
