Villa Wolf

The Villa Wolf estate (founded as J.L. Wolf) lies in the picturesque village of Wachenheim in the Pfalz region in Germany. It is named after the beautiful Italianate Villa which was built in 1843 in an era of great success for this region. Ernst Loosen, of the Dr. Loosen estate in the Mosel area, took over the winery in 1996. His idea was to bring the experience in Riesling winemaking from the Mosel to the Pfalz, as well as producing wines from grapes that are typical for the Pfalz area, such as Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc, Gewürztraminer and Dornfelder. Patrick Moellendorf, who has been at Villa Wolf since 2011, is in charge of the viticulture and winemaking at Villa Wolf, and they have even applied for organic certification for the estate vineyards, which is a process that takes several years to complete and would make 2022 the first official year of organic certification. The concept of making extraordinary wines in the estate vineyards lies in sustainable, organic vineyard practices combined with gentle handling of the fruit and traditional, minimalist winemaking. Their entry level Villa Wolf varietal wines have always been great value in terms of quality, consistency and varietal correctness.
