Weingut Würtzberg - Vinothek
… the first winery in the Saar valley
The former Prussian estate from 1898 with its chateau character sits high above the river Saar in Serrig. The entire estate was built in 1904 and belongs to the wine region MOSEL. Today, the siblings Felix and Annalena Heimes lead together the winery. Felix (25 years old) is responsible for the cellar and the vineyards. Annalena (30 years old) for the rest.
The most important sites are the Serriger Herrenberg, the Serriger Würtzberg and the Ockfener Bockstein. The family winery owns the Serriger Herrenberg and Serriger Würtzberg, which are two “VDP.GROSSE LAGEN” and are characterized by their steep slopes facing the Saar. The two monopoly vineyards have a specific microclimate due to the Serriger barrage.
The various wines come from specific parcels within the two sites – all of them have a unique character. The parcels were created back in 1904. The different parcels within the vineyards are very different because of e.g. the age of the vines, the way the vines are tied, the terroir (soil) and other conditions. The unique character of each parcel influences the wine and thus makes each wine unique in its own way.
The young winemaker Felix (born 1995) is currently cultivating 17 hectares of vineyards. The grape varieties are Riesling, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Noir and Auxerrois. Focus is the queen of the grapes in the MOSEL region: Riesling!
