The Growers > Weingut Rudolf May
Rudolf May founded his estate in 1998 with two hectares, and through hard work and prioritising quality has grown it to fourteen. His focus has always been on Silvaner, and his poor, fossil-rich soils allow him to make very fine, pure, mineral-driven wines. He is one of few growers to demonstrate that this often overlooked varietal can produce distinctive wines that have ageing potential, and produces the finest Silvaners in Germany. He believes in minimal intervention, hence his recent conversion to organic viticulture. This is an estate clearly on the way up.
