Our Nursery

Nik Weis’ grandfather not only founded the winery in 1947, but also established one of the first privately owned nurseries in Germany which is providing winemakers from the Mosel and all over the world with new grapevines until today. Nik Weis especially focuses on the genetics of very old Riesling vines in the Mosel valley since he could prove that even the composition of the plant and vineyard have a huge impact on the wine quality.

Urban Riesling

Inspired by the “urban lifestyle“ of many cities like New York, London, Moscow or Paris, winemaker and globetrotter Nik Weis decided to express this approach to life and pleasure through wine. Just as all famous cities have a genuine character and flair, Nik also thought of a wine whose individual character would stand out the average mass of wines. His non-estate Mosel wine would never be a Riesling that could as well have grown anywhere else on the planet.

URBAN Riesling is a well-known and regularly-awarded wine branch which never forgot about its roots.
