Riesling is the dominant grape of choice but also the Pinot varietals (Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris) and Silvaner have a long tradition in Westhofen. For more than twenty years our vineyards have been organically cultivated. The vines root deep in the living system of the soil which strengthens the expression of vineyard character, or terroir, in our wines. Intensive hand craftsmanship in the tending of the vineyards serves the goal of achieving the highest possible grape quality. Only the very best wines bear the names of the top sites of Westhofen. The soils in these sites are mainly marl interspersed with limestone. The carefully pressed must fermented by the natural yeasts in wooden casks in our large vaulted cellars. The slow fermentation and maturation in the constantly cool cellar conserves the natural aromas. Thus the Wittmann wines come to have their own expression which is at once unmistakable and new every year.
