St. Urbans Hof winery established in 1947 by Nicolaus Weis – the grandfather of Nik Weis, is named after the patron saint of winemaking - St. Urban. The company owns some of the best parks in Moselle: Saarfeilser and Ockfener Bockstein. In the 1960s, Nicolaus' son Herman took over the management of the family business and established himself as an experienced winegrower, especially in the Riesling variety. It was Herman who managed to spread this variety in Canada, planting the first plot with Riesling in the Niagara Falls․ In 1997 the youngest member of the family Nik started to manage St. Urban. From that moment, the process of restructuring the vineyards began. The owners sold low-quality orchards of low-yielding technical varieties and bought land with high-quality vineyards. Today the total area of the company's vineyards is 33 hectares, which is cultivated organically. The company has 5 CRUs where high-quality Riesling grows. Wild yeasts are used to create wines produced by the Urban factory, which allows to feel the terroir better. Thanks to old vines and the use of the latest winemaking technologies, Nik Weis Rieslings receive the highest reviews from critics - both for basic Riesling and for Grand Cru wines.
