Villa Wolf estate-grown Rieslings are made from single-vineyard sites and are produced in the traditional dry style of the Pfalz. Only one wine is made from each estate vineyard.
Villa Wolf Riesling, Wachenheimer
This wine comes from an excellent vineyard in the village of Wachenheim, called Königswingert (“King’s Vineyards”). Here, the weathered sandstone and loam soil produces pure, fruit-driven wines with a distinctive stony character. It is a refreshing wine that’s very easy to drink, but also reflects the terroir of Königswingert.
Villa Wolf Riesling, Wachenheimer Belz
The Riesling from Wachenheimer Belz beautifully captures the stony chalk character of the vineyard in the aroma, and has a fine, firm structure on the palate. Twelve months of lees contact gives the wine nice weight on the mid-palate that carries its layers of fruit through to the dry finish. This vineyard is a monopole of Villa Wolf.
Villa Wolf Riesling, Forster Pechstein
The grand cru Pechstein vineyard, in the neighboring village of Forst, has the most assertive minerality of all the Villa Wolf vineyards. The name translates as “black stone” and refers to the abundance of black basalt in the soil, which gives the wines a firm mineral edge.
