Item Description

“The Riesling vines find perfect conditions on the steep slopes creating a perfect angle to the sun rays. The soil consists of beautiful blue, highly decomposed slate rocks, that give the wines their great mineality, leading to an appealing somewhat salty finish.”-Winemaker Notes

“In 1947, Nik Weis’ grandfather Nicolaus named his winery St. Urbans-Hof (St. Urbans Estate), after the patron saint of the winemakers, Saint Urban. Still today, the winery carries this name alongside with the owner’s name Nik Weis. Nik is the third generation of the family to make wine at the estate and the first to modernize its labelling in order to express that tradition. He changed the name of the winery from St. Urbans-Hof to Nik Weis - St. Urbans-Hof since family work and tradition are of such importance.
In our endeavors we give highest priority to maintaining the ecological balance of our vineyards, in the belief that as winemakers we must recognize and respect the fragile unity of viticulture and nature.
St. Urbans-Hof employs traditional methods of wine growing and winemaking which have been used in the Mosel and Saar Valleys for centuries, some of which date back to the Romans. For example, the vines are grown on the traditional single-post 'Heart-binding' trellis system, whereby the canes are tied in the shape of a heart.
For our family, wine has been at the heart of life for generations. Our deep respect for the traditions of our region remains, as ever, the guarantee for the quality of our wines.”-Winery Notes

Chateau de BerneThe beauty of this wine extends from the bottle to the contents. Layers of raspberry, strawberry jam in the nose invite you to a gorgeous, yet spicy palate. A fresh wine with great acidity for food pairing, but roundness to enjoy on its own. If you only have one bottle to bring – this is the ultimate wine for any occasion.
