The 100 Hills wines are harvested by hand, fermented naturally and matured in 50% stainless steel tanks and 50% large, neutral wooden casks. This combination retains the lively, bright fruit while bringing an extra dimension of texture from maturation in wood.
92 Wine Enthusiast "offers a deeply layered minerality, pristine citrus flavors and richness of texture often lacking in far more expensive wines. Its opulent, slightly slick mouthfeel is intensely satisfying, yet cut by a spray of zesty acidity that lifts and lengthens the finish." (2014 vintage)
The Wittmann Family has been growing grapes and producing wine in the small Rheinhessen village of Westhofen since 1663. Today, the estate cultivates 62 acres of vines in the rolling limestone hills found in the southern part of the region, just west of the Rhine valley. They have been pioneers in developing the full-bodied, well-balanced style of dry wines for which the region has become known. And they were early adopters of organic and biodynamic viticulture.
