His mission is to recultivate some of the oldest vineyards in the region, trying to restore these beautiful ‘frescos’ and bringing them back to their former glory to let the special terroir of each side shine through.

Press Review

    Nik Weis Schiefer Riesling 12pk 2016

    Legally halbtrocken, this cuvée’s marginally higher acidity than that of the “Moselriesling” and “Saarriesling” cuvées results in productive tension and welcome animating midpalate juiciness. Scents of bruised apple and wet stone anticipate the pit-inflected apple and underlying stoniness on a firm palate. The finish is a bit diffuse, but offers satisfying refreshment as well as a bit of mineral intrigue and saliva-inducement from alkalinity and marine salinity.
