Weingut Wittmann, founded in 1663, sits northwest of Worms in the small Rheinhessen village of Westhofen. Philipp Wittmann’s father Günter led the shift to organic viticulture in the late 1980s, way before the movement gained popularity. They have been certified biodynamic since 2004, and Philipp’s work both in his winery and the community have been monumental in the journey to redefine the quality and style of Rheinhessen wines. Grapes for this dry riesling are harvested by hand from estate-owned vineyards around their village, fermented with native yeasts and matured in large, neutral oak casks. The wine is incredibly generous and structured for an estate’s entry level bottling. With loads of fruit and flinty stone jumping out of the glass, this sharp, dry riesling can do so much work when you’re hosting over the holiday season. It’s a no-brainer for the Thanksgiving table.
