Art. # 5719

Roter Riesling (Red Riesling) is a mutation of the Riesling variety, which stands out with more intense fruit flavors and specific character. The wine ferments in stainless steel vats and afterwards ages for a year in 1200 liters old oak barrels. The nose is dominated by citrus and ripe stone fruit aromas, which are complimented by delicate herbaceous and floral notes. The pallet is fresh with full body and fruity finish dominated by a pineapple hint. Beautiful accompaniment to asian cuisine, seafood, fish, poultry and flavorful salads.

Villa Velis

Villa Velis

Velis Vineyards is a unique Bulgarian-German wine project, which is born from the love for wine, nature and art. For the winemakers of Villa Velis, the wine is the most noble interpretation of the spirit of nature as the German dramatist Fridrich Hebel says. The story begins in 2010, when they start to revitalize abandoned vineyards around the village of Karabunar in the Bulgarian Trachian valley. Nowadays in Bulgaria, Velis Vineyards cultivates traditiona,l popular varieties – Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Pinot Noir, Syrah, Petit Verdot and Merlot. They make the wines in their own winery Villa Velis in the village of Karabunar. In Germany they grow, Riesling, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, which they vinify in their own modern winery in Flörsheim-Dalsheim. The main priority of Velis Vineyards is the high quality of the grapes. To achieve it the yields are limited to 5000 kg. from a hectare and the grapes are only hand-picked in small 10 kg. baskets. For the Heaven’s Door series, the Bulgarian grapes аre transported to the German winery in Rheinhessen by refrigerated trucks. There the grapes are fermented and the wines age in French barriques. The delicate interventions are the key to the finesse and elegance of the wines. The Velis Vineyards series are white, rose and red wines with solid aging potential. They impress with structure, variety of aromas and potential to surprise in time. The reserve wines age in French barriques for 12 months and develop smooth and ripe tannins. The following bottle aging of these wines also adds to the balance, depth and complexity. Villa Velis is the series produced by Bulgarian winemakers and vinified just next to the vineyards in Karabunar. This series include wines from Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay, rose from Pinot Noir, as well as reds from Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Petit Verdot and Merlot and blends between them. The wines from the Heaven’s Door series are mainly blends. They are mainly fruit driven and the proportions between the varieties in the blends vary each year depending on the vintage. The Heaven’s Door wines have short contact with French oak. The wines from this series are from Bulgarian grapes but vinified in the German winery. Since 2021 Villa Velis near Karabunar welcomes guests for tastings and also offer well developed hotel and restaurant facilities.

Регионът на Райнхесен е основен за германската винена индустрия и е дом на почти четвърт от лозовите насаждения в страната. Той е и най-големият по отношение на произведени количества вино. Райнхесен е сравнително топъл и сух регион, предпазен от неблагоприятни климатични влияния от планински вериги като Хунсрюк и Таунус. Повечето от лозята са засадени върху топлите и плодородни почви на долината, които са идеални за отглеждането на зряло и здраво грозде, а с репутация на традиционен източник на изключително качествени вина е прочутата Райнтерасе - участък от стръмни лозя покрай западния бряг на река Рейн около градовете Ниерщайн и Опенхайм. В Райнхесен доминират белите сортове, като водеща роля играе Ризлингът, следван от Мюлер-Тюргау, значими площи от лозята са отредени също така на Силванер, Грауер Бургундер (Пино гри) и Вайсер Бургундер (Пино блан). От червените сортове първенец е Дорнфелдер, с почти двойно повече насаждения от по-познатия и любим на всички Шпетбургундер (Пино ноар).

Riesling is an aromatic white grape variety that produces wine in the entire range - from botrytized sweet (one of the best in the world) to dry and semi-dry varieties, with captivating aromas of citrus and stone fruits, as well as the typical petroleum aroma, which in certain terroir appearances can dominate sensitively. Riesling's homeland can be said to be the valleys of the Rhine and Moselle rivers in Germany - the variety likes cooler weather. Naturally, here are the main wine regions of the country (Moselle, Rheinhessen, Rheingau, Pfalz). The vineyards are located on the steep hills, making mechanisation difficult, so here the viticultural activities are mainly manual. The wines from these regions are fresh and with a pronounced acidity. However, Riesling in Germany is by no means the main variety, in fact another is the wine region in which this variety is most common - and this is Alsace in France (or Elsaß in German). Unlike the German Riesling, the French Riesling is more saturated and lush due to the specifics of the microclimate there - the Vosges Mountains provide protection from northern winds and cold, and the sun is more generous in this southern region. Outside of these countries, perhaps Austria also presents itself with an interesting reading of this often called king of white varieties, and some countries of the New World successful experiment with it as well.
