Dönnhoff’s holdings represent some of the best vineyards in the Nahe and all of Germany. Cornelius Dönnhoff farms ten different Grand Cru sites, including a majority of the top-rated Niederhäuser Hermannshöhle and Oberhäuser Brücke Monopole and is certified Fair N Green sustainable.

The Dönnhoff family first came to the Nahe region 250 years ago, establishing a traditional farm in the village of Oberhäusen an der Nahe, which included livestock and vegetable gardens in addition to some grape growing. Oberhäusen and this part of the Nahe river valley is very pastoral; it feels far away from the relative hustle and bustle of the Rheingau and wine tourism. The countryside is serene and beautiful, marked by steep hillside vineyards in the succession of villages following the river from Norheim to Niederhausen, through Oberhäusen, ending in Schlössbockelheim.
