Rudolf May

Weingut Rudolf May is located in Retzstadt, a small wine village in a side valley of the Main north of Würzburg, where grapes are cultivated in barren shell-limestone soils. Since 1998, Petra and Rudolf May have run the estate that has developed from a small, part-time operation. They grow 14 hectares (ca. 35 acres) of vines, primarily in the Retzstadter Langenberg site, with additional holdings in Retzbach, Thüngersheim and Stetten. Silvaner, the most important variety (more than 65 percent), brings forth clear-cut, mineral wines. The British wine critic, Jancis Robinson, wrote the following about the Silvaner “Wellenkalk”: “Those who doubt that Silvaner can deliver great texture and racy acidity stand to be corrected. It’s fantastic to see someone work with such dedication – and on such incredibly barren soils.”
