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 Deidesheimer plot covers 5 hectares, our share is 0.7 hectares. The name of the plot refers to a former lime kiln that existed there. It is located in the warm slope zone on a narrow limestone reef along the foothills of the Middenhaardt. The soil of clay and limestone gravel gives the wine both fullness and potential for aging.

ABOUT DR BÜRKLIN-WOLFF

For centuries, wine has been made at Dr. Burklin Wolf. On about 85 hectares, Riesling is mainly grown, which is among the best in the entire area. This family business located in the Pfalz is run by Bettina, the 22nd generation. She has implemented her grandfather's vision and started making biodynamic wine in 2001, both in the vineyard and in the cellar. The wines are therefore even more terroir driven and exciting! In the vineyard and wine cellar, hardly anything is done with the wines, pure and pronounced wines are the goal. The wines ferment and mature partly in stainless steel and partly in old wooden barrels. The wines are known for a distinct character, new style (modern) Riesling, with present acids and enormous length. READ MORE UNDER THE WINE HOUSE TAB

Vineyard for 2021 Dr. Bürklin-Wolf Kalkofen 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.
