Founded in 1947,, the winery Nik Weis - St. Urbans-Hof has become one of the most important and classic wineries in the Mosel region. Since 2000, the Riesling winery is member of Germany's renowned VDP (Association of German Quality Wine Estates). From regional-level Estate Rieslings to pretigious Grands Crus, Nik Weis' passion is to express the unique terroir in the wines' taste. Therefore, grapes grow in the least six different, steep sites in both the Mosel and Saar valley. A tranditional, mostly manual cultivation and a natural, minimalistic cellar working practice lead to elegant, well-structured and complex wines with a high ageing potential.

"Schodener Saarfeilser Marienberg" is the name of a rather small steep slope in the Saar valley where Nik Veis owns 3.2 hectares of vineyards. Perfectly south facing, the river below the vineyards has changed its course twice in history and, in doing so , left many gravel sediments to join the older red slate subsoils. This rare combination imparts a feather-like delicacy to the wine which are both floral-and fruit- driven. All wines are labeled with the short assignation "Saarfeilser"
