Koehler Ruprecht Philosophy
Our winery’s highest priority is preserving our tradition and our great quality. We are one of the oldest, most distinctive wineries in the Palatinate region. Our wines are pressed using only the finest hand-selected grapes, which undergo spontaneous fermentation in wooden barrels.
Our motto, “Wine is the poetry of the earth,” (Mario Soldati, 1907-1999) sums up our philosophy. When it comes to wine production, the most important thing for us is the quality that ends up in the glass! This standard creates wines with a perfect balance of strength, elegance and longevity, and many of our wines have garnered attention throughout the world. Our successful development was initiated by Bernd Philippi. He is often able to create wines with amazingly long shelf lives, especially Rieslings, which can sometimes come across as a bit headstrong in their younger days. But over time they undergo an interesting development that is valued by many experts.
Koehler-Ruprecht, Riesling Spätlese Trocken Saumagen (2009)
Reg. $35 Sale $30
This historic estate, managed by the legendary and larger than life Bernd Philippi for the last decades and now with the assistance of cellarmaster Dominik Sona, is undoubtedly one of the top estates in the Pfalz. Known for their broad, rich and minerally rieslings, pinot blancs and chardonnays sourced from the two top locations in Kallstadt—-the Steinacker and Saumagen vineyards—-these are distinctive and profound wines. The wines are fermented on their own yeasts, mostly in large (1200 liter) neutral stück casks and aged in large old oak barrels when quantities permit and smaller barrels for small production cuvées. These are old style wines from an estate making trocken wines before it was trendy – the wines age well and are really best after a few years.
