Bürklin-Wolf owns vineyards in the most famous "Lagen" of the Mittelhaardt. The company owns vineyards in different Layers (vineyards) in the towns of Forst, Deidesheim, Ruppertsberg and Wachenheim. Bürklin-Wolf uses the Burgundian model of the quality pyramid for the classification of dry Riesling wines. In this model, terroir, yield and degree of ripeness 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 vineyard covers 4 ha, with Bruklin's share being 0.85 ha. The Burklin Hohenmorgen is located in the warm slope zone on a narrow limestone reef along the foothills of Mittelhaardt. The red sandstone weathered soil with lime deposits gives the wine both fullness and
shelf life.This beautiful iconic Riesling has fermented through spontaneous fermentation and subsequent aging in wooden barrels
This Grosses Gewächs or Grandcru Riesling has a lively pallet with fine aromas of ripe peaches and citrus fruits, elegant and stony with a nice freshness and a very long aftertaste. Analysis: Alcohol: 12.5% vol. Acid: 8.1 g/l Residual sweetener: 1.4 g/l

Vineyard for 2021 Dr. Bürklin-Wolf Hohenmorgen Grand Cru

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 the 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 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.
