Since the 2001 vintage Bűrklin-Wolf have classified their wines according to the vineyard site. After exhaustive research they discovered that today’s top vineyards are exactly the same as those identified in the 1828 Bavarian Land Taxation Laws. This was a time when these vineyards produced some of the most expensive and highly regarded wines in the world. Aptly, the Pfalz Mittelhardt is the topographical and geological extension of France’s Côte d’Or and Alsace. The Mittelhardt’s best sites are similarly located within a very narrow, sheltered east-facing strip of land.
