Welcome to Weltachs Winery...


A mission statement is hardly the way a winery welcomes its website readers to enjoying its wines, its history and its region. However, we at Weltachs believe that a mission statement is the keystone of our production philosophy and all that goes into making our wines.

Mission Statement: Weltachs Winery is dedicated to producing good wine for real people who want to enjoy quality wines at affordable prices for daily consumption.

                                                            

                                                          ***

That says it all -- as such our wines reflect the finest traditions of German winemaking over the course of centuries.

All Weltachs wines, whites, reds, rosés, and sparklers, are created to be savored when purchased. Some of them can easily be stored for several years for improved flavor with bottle ageing under proper storage conditions.

Weltachs is devoted to maintaining the highest standards of Germany’s ecologically-friendly grape production and vinification procedures to assure clean, flavorful,  true grape-varietal, typical-varietal flavors.

Top Pfalz White Wines
 

RIESLING is Number One with 27% of the acreage ...
it varies from bone-dry to dry, from off-dry or semi-dry
to late harvest sweet – or even late harvest dry; or is
nectare-like nobly sweet... all balanced with fine acidity

RIVANER aka MÜLLER-Thurgau follows with 10%.
It frequently is used as a blending wine in a Cuvée being
less acidic, broader in flavor than Riesling. Generally
good with tomato sauces or preparations.
Can also be a fine wine on its own with low-yield
concentration and some ageing.

GRAUBURGUNDER (Pinot gris/Pinot grigio) is
10% from the Pfalz is well-structured, and shows good
minerality very different from its French and Italian cousins. Low Acidity is another virtue.

GEWÜRZTRAMINER   circa 3% follows as  local blending grape for Sparkling White Wines and as aperitif and dessert wine depending on how it is vinified – either traditionally sweet or new-style dry. Unmistakeable spicy flavors!

SCHEUREBE  and HUXELREBE , both naturally sweet
grapes, and SILVANER, basically dry, are making strides
gaining popularity here, also.

Top Pfalz Red Wines
 

DORNFELDER with 18% surface area is in the lead given its dense color, and an uncanny ability to present itself well as a dry, semi-dry or even sweet red wine showing dark fruit flavors.

PORTUGIESER at 14% is a close second. This grape is a lighter-colored red wine showing mild strawberry, red currant and cherry flavors as both a red wine for afternoon and early evening meals and sipping -- or as a delightful Rosé. Made from aged vines and with high concentration, it can indeed be a very “serious“ noble drop.

Spätburgunder or Pinot Noir at 7%  -- the great Burgundian grape can be used in German white sparkling wines, as in real Champagne, being a “blanc de noir,“ that is, white wine made from red grapes and even as a dessert wine!  It has wonderful expression  revealing delicate, almost surreal light red fruit flavors (various cherries, red currants, wild strawberry, violets,) for meats ranging from veal and lamb, to pork and poultry, delicate fine cheeses and egg dishes, and even to red- or pink-fleshed fish (tuna, salmon, skate, shark). Spätburgunder is of growing importance and is increasingly planted in the south Pfalz.
