Philipp Wittmann (responsible for the cellar and export), together with father Günther (vineyards) and mother Elisabeth (sales), has built a fantastic wine company in Westhofen, Rheinhessen. Since 1990, we have been working first organically and later biodynamically. The starting point for the wines is therefore: terroir expression through healthy soil. A low yield per hectare, manual selection of the best grapes and a very slow vinification with natural yeasts without the addition of sulphite on large wooden foeders do the rest. The house is 'the standard' for Rheinhessen and now also a standard for German white in general. This is evident from the enormous flow of international appreciations that the wines receive, both higher and lower. Philipp has already been named the best white winemaker in Germany twice by the authoritative Eichelmann in 2003 and 2013. In 2014 he received the same title from Gault Millau. Philipp is married to Eva Clüsserath who owns her own wine estate in the Moselle and that is where this Ansgar-Clüsserath Trittenheimer Apotheke Riesling trocken comes from.

In the Moselle the vintage was more or less the same as in Wittmans Rheinhessen: warm and dry in the summer. This caused problems on the slate, especially with the young canes, which do not root deeply enough. However, Eva Clüsserath only makes her spontaneously fermented Trittenheimer Apotheke Trocken from very old vines, so she was able to overcome this problem with this wine. In fact, here too this wine is seen as of excellent quality this year. A very steep slope -Philipp has it a lot easier than his wife in that respect-, with loose 100-year-old vines from a vineyard of such a high standard that it has been seen as a medicine for centuries, hence the name Apotheke. The wine is very classic from the Moselle: floral and fruity in the nose with wonderful drinkability, freshness and minerality in the mouth. This Riesling has very limited availability.

This delicious dry Pinot Blanc is pale yellow in the glass. Lots of fruit on the nose such as pear, grapefruit and pineapple. In the mouth a soft attack but quickly fresh with lots of juice, tasty fruit, nice acidity and a surprisingly strong minerality. Wonderfully fresh, not too heavy in alcohol and perfect blanas between the acid and the fruit. This wine can be widely used at the table with most fish and seafood dishes, white meat, spicy Oriental dishes and with a sweet dessert.
