Established in 1993, Karl-Heinz Gaul is a high-quality winery, known for their elegant wines. It is located in the western outskirts of the town Grünstadt-Sausenheim in Northern Pfalz. The winery is run by two sisters, Karoline and Dorothee Gaul, and their mother. Both sisters attended the wine-making college in Geisenheim and represent the new generation of successful wine makers. Gaul means a workhorse in German and is their logo. Their motto is: As little as possible and as much as necessary. A distinctive feature of this winery is their usage of glass stoppers on their bottles. The stoppers can be used to keep the remaining wine in the bottle for up to 2 days.

|2009 Sausenheimer Honigsack Riesling Spätlese trocken
Medium-bodied, this Riesling is elegant yet intense despite being dry on the palate. Enjoy this with lightly flavored seafood or chicken.
|2009 Neuleininger Schlossberg Riesling Spätlese trocken
Literally meaning Castle Hill, the dry climate and limestone-rich soil of the Schlossberg vineyard gives the wines a full-bodied and well balanced character. Has a touch more minerality than the Sausenheimer Honigsack which results in a more serious character. Dry on the palate.
|2009 Sausenheimer Honigsack Weisser Burgunder Spätlese trocken
The Weisser Burgunder grape makes this a robust dry wine perfect for matching with fish in rich sauce or even the local chicken rice. More full-bodied than the Riesling grape.
