“We want to make wine that is more than just the product of grapes, soil, and sun.

Wines with rough edges. One of a kind. Wines as complex as life itself.”

TOP 20 of the Pfalz
The jury of journalists, sommeliers and dealers has decided and we are among them again: TOP 20 of the young winemakers in the Pfalz and therefore part of the winemaker group Die Junge Pfalz 2023/2024.



Weingut Villa Hochdörffer is a gem set at the heart of the Südpfalz, a corner of Germany close to the French border that enjoys nothing more than bringing a dose of gourmet fun and hospitality into life’s daily tête-à-têtes. Working roughly 50 hectares of vines around the historic winegrowing village of Nussdorf, the Hochdörffer family has shown a fine touch for producing elegant, delicately fruity wines.

Or in the words of international wine journalist Paula Sidore: the wines pay testament to a “fine signature and subtlety” and are “notably concentrated on the essential.” And it’s a pleasure to explore them.

A Lifelong Love


Fine Pinot family wines and multifaceted Rieslings are the calling card of Villa Hochdörffer and the family’s grand love affair. The Hochdörffers are proud that this passion has spread beyond the borders of Germany, and can now be enjoyed by connoisseurs in the Czech Republic, Finland, Poland, and Japan as well.

DER FEINSCHMECKER magazine has for years counted Villa Hochdörffer among the finest estates in Germany, and its wines are recommended in Gault&Millau, Eichelmann, and VINUM as well. All of which has only inspired young winegrower David Hochdörffer to keep pushing higher and harder, translating the unique terroir of the Südpfalz ever more clearly in his wines.
