Bacharacher Wolfshöhle

Bacharacher Wolfshöhle is a vineyard of great diversity. The VDP.GROSSE LAGE® WOLFSHÖHLE lies sheltered in the Steeg Valley that cuts up and away from the River Rhine to the elevations of the Hunsrück Hills. This steep, south-facing vineyard, with a gradient of 60 to 65 degrees, has a varied soil structure. The soils here are very different from those of St. Jost as they comprise medium-heavy clay slate and crystalline slate. The special properties of the soil lend the wines of the Wolfshöhle their full-bodied, mature character. Like the terroir the topography of the vineyards also changes; on this site the ground drops steeply from 220 to 120 metres above sea level. In our opinion Wolfshöhle is one of the most impressive vineyards on the Middle Rhine as it produces remarkable wines that exhibit a mixture of charm and precision. Together with our delicate Spätburgunders (Pinot noir) and long-lived Großes Gewächs (literally: “great growth”), the fruity Spätlese or late harvest wines from the Wolfshöhle are the typical hallmarks of our winery.
