Bürklin-Wolf owns vineyards in the most famous “Lagen” of the Mittelhaardt. The company owns vineyards in several Lagen (vineyards) in the towns of Forst, Deidesheim, Ruppertsberg and Wachenheim. For the classification of dry Riesling wines, Bürklin-Wolf uses the Burgundian model of the quality pyramid. In this model, the terroir, yield and maturity of the grapes are taken into account, so Grand Cru (GC) and Premier Cru are used. Bürklin-Wolf is a member of the VDP (Verband Deutscher Prädikats- und Qualitätsweingüter) but nevertheless does not use the term Grosses Gewächs.

The total Grosses Awaited vineyard is 7 ha. large of which Burklin-Wolf has the most beautiful part, but that is only 0.68 ha. big. A “Morgen” is an old surveying term and gives the piece of land that one man could work in one morning and this is where the name Langenmorgen comes from because for 0.68 a man spends a little longer than a morning doing maintenance so a Long Morning!

the dr. Bürklin-Wolf Langenmorgen Grand Cru is the most iconic and scarce wine with very high ratings every year (always between 95-100 points). This part of the vineyard contains ferruginous and calcareous sandstone with loess deposits that provide minerals and warmth.

the dr. Bürklin-Wolf Langenmorgen Grandcru is a very nice wine. Due to the proximity of the forest, there are large differences between day and night temperatures, resulting in a wine with developed fruit and great clarity. It opens with pure flint tones of crushed stone and perfectly ripe and elegant fruit that is seamlessly intertwined with the challenging stone/spicy and even salty notes. Intense and elegant on the palate, this is a full-bodied, dense and juicy Riesling that does not appear bone dry, but has a serious tannin grip, revealing a great aging potential. Very long and complex. It is very promising and has a certain creaminess of texture.

The roots of the Dr. Bürklin-Wolf go back to the 16th century. The winery, with 86 hectares of vineyards, is one of the largest private estates in Germany and has been managed since 1992 by Christian von Guradze together with his wife, the heiress to the family winery. Although it had been known for its Auslese and Trockenbeerenauslesen for some time, the focus of production shifted to dry white wines, mainly vinified from Riesling. The total production concept of the traditional company Dr. Bürklin-Wolf changed fundamentally and led it back to the top of the Palatinate wines in particular through an extreme focus on quality. The cultivation of the vineyards has been converted since 2005 in accordance with biodynamic guidelines.
