single vineyard in the municipality of Rauenthal in the German wine-growing region of Rheingau. It was first mentioned in 1211 and again in 1600 as "Wülffen" or "Wüllfen", which at that time referred to a rounded elevation of land. According to another version, this could also refer to the family name Wolf, which used to be widespread in the Rheingau. The south-facing vineyards with a slope of 10 to 40% cover 16 hectares of vineyards on medium to deep phyllite slate soils with a layer of tertiary marl. The Riesling variety is cultivated here in particular. The Albus, Hessische Staatsweingüter (Eberbach Monastery) and H. J. Ernst wineries, for example, have shares in the site.
I have great respect for the scope and quality of the wein.plus encyclopaedia. It is a unique place to go for crisp, sound information on terms from the world of wine.Dr. Edgar Müller
