The St. Urbans-Hof Oekonomierat Nic. Weis ”is located in the municipality of Leiwen (Bernkastel area) in the German wine-growing region Moselle, It was founded in 1947 by Nicolaus Weis (1905-1971) and after the saint urbane (Pope Urban I.), the patron saint of winegrowers. Nicolaus Weis founded one at the same time nursery, The business was taken over by son Hermann Weis in the 1960s. This followed in the early 1970s Canada and planted Riesling vines on a large area called St. Urban Vineyard. It later became the Vineland Estates winery. The company is now run by the third family generation of Nik (olaus) Weis. This learned in the United States and on Vineland Estates in Canada the vintner trade, entered in 1997 after graduation Geisenheim into the family business and carried out some quality-improving measures with the father. Kai Hausen and Rudi Hoffmann are responsible for the cellar and Hermann Jostock for the vineyards. The claim to vinify the highest quality wines with their own profile and Moselle character is clearly defined in a 10-point philosophy. The winery's own term “wine genesis” was created for the complex development process.
