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 Goldbächel vineyard is a prime location in Wachenheim, covering 4.3 hectares, where the share of Dr. Bürklin-Wolf Bis is 3 ha in size. The south slope provides optimal sun exposure, warming the yellow and red sandstone gravel bottom. At a depth of 1.80 m (6 feet) there is a 1.20 m (4
foot) thick layer of alluvial rock. Here, the roots of the vines are very well supplied with water and minerals. The Riesling grapes for the Bürklin-Wolf Wachenheimer Goldbächel Premier Cru are hand-picked and after spontaneous fermentation in large, old oak barrels, the wine is aged for 10 months in the same barrels. This Premier Cru has intense floral aromas. Great harmony of fruit and juicy acidity, subtle
mineral undertones.

The wine is fantastic with fresh mussels, lobster and crab meat or with trout. The Riesling has a very long, exciting aftertaste and this topper is also made from biologically-dynamically grown grapes. Enjoy a drink or put it away for 20 years or more - whatever you want

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.
