Wiltingen is a well-known village in the Saar valley as many famous winemakers own vineyards in its area. The site called "Schlangengraben" has a very good water supply while the soil consists of reddish slate. As a result, wines are said to be mineral and spicy. Planted in 1905, our vineyard is one of the oldest in the whole Mosel region. The old vines' roots dig deep in the ground and can make use of more nutrients and minerals than average old vineyards. Furthermore, berries from old vines are very small but have outstandingly thick skins - the place where the entire grape aroma is located. The special combination of deep roots and small berries results automatically in an intense, lively and complex wine with many aromas.
The Wiltinger Kabinett has a fabled floral nose laced with gentle smoke and spiciness, delicate sweetness, a lot of juicy fruit flavors and smooth, vivid acidity. The mixture of reddish slate and impressively old vines makes this Saar Kabinett a thing of fairy tales. Goes perfectly well with green Thai curry, melon wrapped with Serrano or glazed pork belly with kimchi.
Weingut St. Urbans-Hof was first established in 1947 by Nicolaus Weis who was awarded the prestigiour title "oekonomierat" (Chancellor of Agriculture) in 1969 for his dedication to German viticulture traditions and his name and title became part of the winery name, St. Urbans-Hof Oekonomierat Nic. Weis Weingut. His son, Hermann and daughter-in-las Ida, carried forward the tradition and further developed the winery through the acquisition of prime vineyard sites in the Mosel and Saar Valleys.
