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 Böhlig vineyard in Wachenheim is 4.94 hectares in size and is one of the few vineyards in the Mittelhaardt with weathered sandstone and limestone soil which provide an excellent supply of minerals and water. The south slope gives perfect sun exposure. to the dr. Bürklin-Wolf Wachenheimer Böhlig Premier Cru everything is right. Perfect fruit, great length with ripe and elegant acidity. The fantastic structure is the basis for a great aging potential. After manual harvesting, the grapes undergo spontaneous fermentation in large, old oak barrels, maturing on the yeast in the same barrels until bottling. The wine is rich and full, elegant and very precise. The limestone soil gives great depth of minerality and powerful, earthy herbs. 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 or more years - 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.
