The Estate

The estate’s vineyards are located on steep slopes along the Mosel River at Laurentiuslay, Goldtröpfchen and Mehringer and along the Saar River. One of St. Urbans-Hof’s best parcels is at Goldtröpfchen where the soils are amongst the stoniest and craggiest of the entire 65 hectare vineyard. This site is planted to ungrafted Riesling vines planted over 100 years ago. Wines produced from this well-known vineyard are traditionally left with residual sweetness.

Wine Making

In the winery, exclusively wild yeasts from the vineyard and winery are employed for the fermentation process. The company also includes one of the first privately owned nurseries in Germany that operates on the sélection massale principle.

Food Suggestions

This pairs well with pork, shellfish, spicy dishes, poultry, and cured meat.

"Earthen beeswax and saffron lend contrast to guava, honey and grapefruit in this sun-drenched spätlese. It's intensely concentrated but light as a feather. Lingering tones of crushed slate, salt and smoky minerality linger long on the finish. Delightfully primary now but it should improve through 2035 and hold further still."
