St. Urbans-Hof

Although vineyards had belonged to the Weis family for centuries, Nicolaus Weis (vintage 1905, Nik Weis' grandfather) founded the winery in 1947. In the early years he built cellars and winery buildings on a hill on Leiwen's periphery. He named his estate for the patron saint of German winemakers, St. Urban, and 'hof' (the German word for 'estate'), St. Urban's Estate. In the 1960s his son, Hermann, assumed management of all operations. During Hermann's tenure the nursery expanded to become one of Germany's largest.

    This reliable Mosel has interesting gasoline and citrus notes on the nose, a beautiful, clear lemon-lime colour and warm, slightly off-dry baked apple or even apple cider on the palate. There is even a toasted coconut element - which is intriguing and not out of place. Delicious and recommended - especially at this price. Will age another sev... Read More
