A racey, vibrant and lively example of German Riesling with the sweetness reigned in.

Extremely versatile with food from cheeses and white meats, creamy pastas and, of course great by itself.

About Willems Willems & Hofmann

Carolin and Jürgen Hofmann are rising stars of the German wine scene and there wines are both thrilling as well as representing exceptional value.

They are full of vibrant energy and pure fruit with mineral fresh intensity. Carolin and Jürgen came together in 2006 and since then the estates have been run by this dynamic couple. The June 2006 wedding of Carolin and Jürgen Hofmann married not only two individuals, but their respective parents' wine estates, and most importantly the very different wine cultures of the Saar and Rhinehessen as well. Their shared philosophical approach to producing world-class wines has resulted in a one-of-a-kind bridge: two winegrowing regions, one location. A tremendous challenge best summed up in a passing comment: "Uns werd ned langweilig! ('It's never boring around here!')."

The vast Rheinhessen is a unique region of Germany, highlighted by a great diversity of terroir and varietals covering an area between the Pfalz and the Rheingau as well as bordering the Nahe.

They have challenged themselves to take something good and make it truly excellent.

Additional Info

From The Producer

Willems Willems - Traditionally led by the women of the family, the Willems winegrowing estate is now in its fifth generation. The family-owned-and-run operation began as a mixed farm until the 1971 marriage of Maria Willems to her Karl, who bore the same surname thanks to a distant common ancestor. From their union emerged the doubled name that the Weingut Willems-Willems proudly continues to use today.

Hofmann - In 1971, Klaus and Irene Hofmann converted what had to date been a mixed agricultural operation into a dedicated winegrowing estate. Although their son Jürgen discovered his passion for his parents' business relatively late, his unwavering dedication more than made up for any tardiness. A degree in viniculture was followed by a return to the family estate in 1997/98. He invested in new cellar technology, concentrated the growing areas to the best sites and planted traditional varieties in the vineyards around his home town of Appenheim

Do we price match? Yes, within reason. Everyday low & consistent pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine.
