VDP.GUTSWEINE, or regional wines, originate from an estate's holdings within a region. They are entry-level house wines that meet the general standards prescribed by the VDP and provide a good introduction to the VDP's hierarchy that inherently links wine quality with origin.

 

 

GRAPE VARIETIES

At least 80% of the estate’s vineyards are planted with traditional grape varieties typical of their region.

 

MAXIMUM YIELDS

Reduced yields of 75/hl/ha

 

IDENTIFICATION MARKS

A VDP.GUTSWEIN bears the name of the wine estate, the region, and the grape variety on the label. The use of the designation VDP.GUTSWEIN on the label or capsule is optional.

 

Provided they qualify for specific Prädikat, the traditional Prädikats Kabinett and Spätlese are permitted for all styles of wine, from dry to sweet, while the Prädikats Auslese, Beerenauslese, Eiswein or Trockenbeerenauslese are reserved exclusively for lusciously sweet wines.
