About the winery
Nik Weis took over the winery in 1997. In 2002 Nik married Daniela, a winemaker's daughter from the neighboring village of Mehring who holds a Master's Degree in Business Administration. Nik and Daniela have two children, a son, Nic, and a daughter named Clara. Since the year 2000 the winery is a member of the prestigious VDP (Association of German Praedikcat Estates).
Nik and his staff grow 33 hectares (82 acres) of Riesling in some of the finest sites of the Middle-Mosel and Saar. These vineyards demonstrate what has fascinated wine lovers for centuries.
There are three vineyards in each of the Middle-Mosel and Saar, the foundation for a wide spectrum of unique and characteristic single-vineyard wines.
In three "Grand Cru" Sites (Leiwener Laurentiuslay, Ockfener Bockstein, Piesporter Goldtröpfchen) and three Village Sites (Wiltinger, Saarfeilser and Mehringer) Nik Weis and his team work year after year towards expressive and characterfull wines.
Today the winery exports to international markets and enjoys worldwide a great reputation for exceptional Riesling wines
