NIK WEIS St.urbans-Hof Riesling-
After World War II, viticulture in #Germany was destroyed. It was extremely difficult to work economically, especially in the steep terraced hills of the #Mosel valley. In addition there was no quality plant material available.
#Nicolaus Weis, grandfather of #NikWeis , the current owner and operator of Weis Reben, recognized these challenges. In 1947, from his place in the world-renowned Mosel/#Saar /Ruwer wine region, he set out to explore combating and defeating the dreaded phylloxera virus. Actively supported by official institutions, he contributed to the renaissance of what were previously endangered vineyards by offering highly productive, genetically sound plant material which stood out not only for its excellent resistance to disease but also for its vitality and longevity.
Together with his business partner Josef Rules, a graduate of the Trier Institute of Viticulture, he founded Weis und Rules on the outskirts of his home town of #Leiwen in the Mosel Valley. Their work as grape vine breeders was launched with the #Riesling clone 21B, today known as Weis 21, in the1950s
Smoky veins of struck flint and slate lend a savory mineral tone to this refreshingly tonic Riesling.
#Nik Weis Urban Riesling begins with a very pleasant aroma full of floral notes, apricots, tangerines and apples. A sip of the wine reveals an explosion of tart, juicy fruit flavors similar to the nose yet tinged with honey.

I am lost in the thought of you,
I am feeling that touch of you,
I am sensing that scent of you,
I am smitten by the love of you.
I am lost in the love for you,
Baby, crazy you make me go.
And, life has a purpose too,
When I am there nearby you.
