One of the new import offerings of the winery, the Wiltinger is a "village" wine. Since it does not come from a Grand Cru vineyard, we simply call it Wiltinger, but it is a fine Riesling from the Saar Valley. The Red Slate soil gives the wine a unique spicy note, herbaceous nose, and salty minerality. Alte Reben means "old vines" in German and the wine in this bottle comes from a parcel planted in the 1930's. It is a Kabinett Feinherb, which means it is a bit drier that a normal Kabinett, about 22 g/l residual sugar. 1,500 cases produced, 500 cases imported

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.
