Producer Info

The Villa Wolf Estate dates back to 1756 and for two centuries was very successful. During the latter half of the 20th century however it fell into disrepair. In 1996 Ernst Loosen bought the estate and turned things around, dramatically increasing the estate’s quality and reputation.A historic estate that has been brought back to life by the magnificent Ernst Loosen. These wines are different in style to Ernst’s Loosen Estate in the Mosel and when compared really show the variation and diversity German Riesling can offer.

Region

Pfalz is a key wine producing region in western Germany, located between the Rhein/Rhine river and the low-lying Haardt mountain range (a natural continuation of the Alsatian Vosges). It covers a rectangle of land 45 miles (75km) long and 15 miles (25km) wide. To the north lies Rheinhessen; to the south, the French border andAlsace.In terms of both quality and quantity, Pfalz is one of Germany’s most important regions, and one which shows great promise for the future. An increasing proportion of Germany’s finest Riesling and Pinot Noir(Spätburgunder) come from Pfalz vineyards, and the region generates more everyday Landwein and Deutscher Wein than any other region by far Pfalz’s vineyards produce both white wines (60 percent) and red (40 percent). The whites have long been the most successful and, as is standard almost everywhere in the Rheinland, Riesling dominates the local vineyards and wines. In 2013 the region had 14,000 acres (5,600 ha) of Riesling vines, accounting for roughly a quarter of its entire vineyard area.
