The winery is located in the municipality of Wachenheim (Mittelhaardt-German Wine Route) in the German wine-growing region of Pfalz. Its roots go back to the end of the 16th century to Bernhard Bürklin (1580-1636). His Renaissance house, built in 1606, still stands today. It received its present name in 1875 when Luise Wolf (1848-1882) married Privy Councillor Dr. Albert Bürklin (1844-1924). After the turn of the century, the latter developed the estate into an absolutely top-class business. The next owner was the grand-nephew of Privy Councillor Dr. Albert Bürklin (1907-1979; see family history in detail there). In 1990 it was taken over by his daughter Bettina Bürklin-von Guradze and her husband Christoian Gurazde. The winery subsequently initiated comprehensive measures to improve quality and was the initiator of Grosses Gewächs Pfalz with the goal of a Palatinate site classification. Today, the winery is one of the largest privately owned vineyards in Germany. Steffen Brahner has been the managing director since 2008.

There is a vast number of sources on the web where one can acquire knowledge about wine. But none has the scope, timeliness and accuracy of the information in the encyclopaedia at wein.plus. I use it regularly and rely on it.
