ABOUT THE PRODUCER
About Helmut Dolde Neuffener Riesling
Helmut Dolde Neuffener Riesling takes Helmut’s magic touch to Germany’s most famous grape, which he harnesses here in its most lush and saline form. The freshness of marne blanche marries with the body and minerality of brown marl to create a wine that screams for marine life. A supreme food-friendly wine that is begging for—if not a plateau de fruits de mer—at the very least, an oyster.
About Helmut Dolde
In the shadow of a fairytale castle, at elevations up to 1,000 meters above sea level, Helmut and Hedwig Dolde grow Silvaner, Pinots (Noir and Blanc), Riesling, and Weißburgunder with integrity and care, channeling some of the most exciting terroirs we have seen for years: Weiße Jura (aka marne blanche) and some small plots of volcanic soils in and around the villages of Linsenhofen and Neuffen (that takes its name from the imposing castle that dominates the area), and Braune Jura soils on the promising and yet depressingly underutilized slopes around nearby Metzingen.
They also make the famed Da Steppt der Bär Pet’Nat, a set of insane ciders (apple and black pear), and the purest wild fruit distillates we have ever experienced (Helmut’s uncle is a dab hand with a still) — all from a domaine little larger than your average postage stamp.
The region may be known locally as the Swabian Jura, but tasting in the Dolde cellar puts us more in mind of the Sound of Music. These delicious drinks epitomize what “mountain wines” mean for us. Pure as a stream in a high meadow, they invigorate, refresh, and keep us coming back for more.
