About Wittmann

Philipp Wittmann was named Winemaker of the Year 2014 by the Gault Millau Wine Guide, with the judges praising him as "one of the pioneers of organic viticulture and a driving force behind quality developments" in the southern Rheinhessen. "For many years he has produced superb dry Rieslings with fascinating ageing potential," they went on. "Almost single-handedly he elevated the Morstein site to legendary status." Philipp’s ancestors have been winegrowers in the old market town of Westhofen since the mid-1600s. His father Günter put the estate on an organic footing, and it’s been a member of organic farmers' association Naturland since 1990. Philipp then took the step to go biodynamic in 2004. He lays the foundation for wines of exceptional quality through intensive, year-round vineyard maintenance, low yields and the uncompromising selection of bunches by hand. For the most part, the wines ferment in traditional, old oak casks or stainless steel and fermentation often continues into the year following the harvest. Already firmly established as one of Germany’s superstar producers, this young winemaker has a brilliant future ahead of him. Biodynamic producer

About Phillip Wittmann

Philipp began building on his father’s excellent groundwork in the late 1990s. He’s since built a name for the consistent quality of his Riesling, and has managed to sustain a remarkable trajectory throughout his career. In 2003 he was named Newcomer of the Year by Germany’s Feinschmecker magazine. In 2014, he added to this by being named Gault Millau Winemaker of the Year. The judges praised him as "one of the pioneers of organic viticulture and a driving force behind quality developments" in the southern Rheinhessen. "For many years he has produced superb dry Rieslings with fascinating ageing potential," they went on. "Almost single-handedly he elevated the Morstein site to legendary status."
Philipp is married to the winemaker Eva Clüsserath of Weingut Ansgar Clüsserath in Trittenheim on the Mosel, and is also chairman of the Rheinhessen chapter of the VDP. Already firmly established as one of Germany’s superstar producers, this young winemaker looks to have a brilliant future ahead of him.
