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 Gerümpel vineyard in the village of Wachenheim is certainly one of the most famous vineyards in Germany, first mentioned in documents dated 1429. The vineyard is a total of 13 hectares of which the plot of Burklin is 6.2 hectares. The benefits of Gerümpel vineyard is unique because of the frequent warm winds, so that the grapes dry quickly after rain reducing the risk of fungal infections. This plot is characterized by its ability to produce healthy grapes even when picked late. The proximity to the Grand Cru vineyards of Forst, just on the other side of the fence, also means that the Gerümpel vineyard benefits from the typical weathered sandstone of Wachenheim and the volcanic basalt of Forst. the dr. Bürklin-Wolf Wachenheimer Gerümpel Riesling Premier Cru has an intense and refined nose with guava and vanilla. Concentrated and energizing with clear, stony minerality. 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.
