Weingut Dr. Bürklin-Wolf | Pfalz
The Dr. Bürklin-Wolf Estate in Wachenheim is one of the largest and most important family-owned wineries in Germany. Founded by Bernard Bürklin in 1597 the estate is now run by his descendant, Bettina Bürklin von Gurdaze, and her husband Christian. Bettina, the oldest daughter of Dr. Albert Bürklin, inherited the property from her parents in 1990 and since then she has truly taken the lead at the estate by turning her own vision into a reality and establishing the winery as a pioneer and trailblazer for change in German viticulture. Carrying on where her ancestors left off, the key objective is to produce top-quality Riesling in harmony with nature.
The vineyards of Dr. Bürklin-Wolf are a treasure trove of top-rated vineyard sites in the unique landscape of the Pfalz Mittelhaardt district and include many of the best sites in Wachenheim, Forst, Deidesheim and Ruppertsberg. The Gaisbohl site is owned entirely by Dr. Bürklin-Wolf. To ensure that the diversity and depth of the terroir could be mirrored and presented perfectly, Bettina converted the entire vineyard area to certified biodynamic methods in 2005, making Bürklin-Wolf the first German member of the prestigious Biodyvin group. The passion to respect the inherited resources, as well as maintain them for her children and further generations to come, is the focal point of all she does.
