VOLS, a small winery with old family-owned vineyards located on the best Southern facing slopes in Ayl and Wilting, the best wine villages on the Saar River. For several years the committed winemaker Helmut Plunien has experimented in these vineyards in order to produce best wines from mostly un-grafted vines. The extremely fruity and concentrated wines from the Saar river, that have been served and enjoyed all over the world for centuries, are sold in the traditional dark slander bottles.
The low harvest per hectare yields of old vineyards result in highly concentrated must. A fermentation that relies on natural yeasts together with a careful vinification guaranteed unique and long lasting wines. The 80 to 100 years old roots of the vine grapes stand on ron rich slate soil, which is traversed by countless water veins.
The grapes are traditionally picked and selected by hand. The varietal and art-typical Saar Riesling from the VOLS vineyard - once only an insider tip - became an acknowledged top winery. Spontaneous fermentation and a long and gentle finish in the wine cellar ensures a long lasting full bodied wine at a rather low alcohol level.
Simply sniff a Riesling and hints of apple, citrus, peach and apricot can be detected.The purity of fru it aroma combined with a unique fru it acidity make the Riesling into one of the greatest grape varieties in the world.
