Villa Wolf Dry Riesling is a classic wine with fine fruit and balance. Perfect with hearty Pfalz cuisine, but also a pleasure on its own. Riesling is a very aromatic, fruity grape that is produced in an enormous range of styles. The ability to express the origin and soil in which the plants grow has made this grape variety one of the most popular in Germany for centuries. Riesling wines are able to age for decades and then still offer an amazing taste experience.
Villa Wolf Dry Riesling is simply glorious with seafood especially Shelfish. Lighter seafood salads and vegetarian dishes with the grassy freshness of Asparagus work well too. The fresh racy acidity of Riesling especially from cool climates makes this one of the most versatile Food Friendly wine grapes.

About the region and producer
In 1996, Ernst Loosen took over the J.L. Wolf winery in the Pfalz region, which has been rich in tradition since 1756. Villa Wolf is a country villa in the Italian style, unique in its design, which was completed in 1843 according to plans by the Karlsruhe architect Friedrich Eisenlohr.
For Ernst Loosen, the takeover of J.L. Wolf (now Villa Wolf) was a déjà vu experience. Just as with the Dr. Loosen Winery, the opportunity arose to breathe new life into a winery with a good stock of vines in prime locations. The location of both wineries is also special: Dr. Loosen is located in Bernkastel on the Middle Mosel, where the concentration of prime vineyard sites is highest. Villa Wolf in Wachenheim is located on the Mittelhaardt with a special microclimate (similar to that of Alsace).
Sheltered on the edge of the Mittelhaardt forest, all Burgundy grape varieties thrive particularly well in the mild climate of the Rhine Valley (along with figs, almonds and sweet chestnuts). But our vineyards also offer the best conditions for great, dry Rieslings. It was precisely here, in the Pfalz, that Pinot Gris was recognized as a grape variety in the 19th century and first vinified independently. The unique regional climate of the Middle Haardt, the mineral-rich soils of limestone, basalt and sandstone, as well as the great age of the vines are the building blocks for the terroir of our vineyards. Their importance for the production of outstanding wines was recognised a long time ago.
