About Weingut St. Urbans-Hof Winery
Weingut St. Urbans-Hof Winery is located in the prestigious Mosel region of Germany and is well-known for its Riesling wines.
Weingut St. Urbans-Hof was founded in 1947 by Niklaus Weis. His grandson, Nik Weis has reshaped St. Urban-hof into one of the “hottest” wineries in Mosel.
Weingut St. Urbans-Hof is known for its outstanding portfolio of vineyards stretching along the Mosel and Saar Rivers in the southwest of Germany, in the state of Rheinland-Pfalz. The estate’s holdings include many of the region’s crown jewels, world-class parcels with renowned names like “Piesporter Goldtröpfchen”, “Leiwener Laurentiuslay” and “Ockfener Bockstein.” The wines demonstrate the lightness, elegance, and spice for which the Mosel is known. The estate is a member of the Verband Deutscher Prädikatsweingüter (the Association of German Prädikat Wine Estates, abbreviated VDP).
Nik Weis’s wines have garnered fabulous scores for his Estate Riesling as well as for Ockfener Bockstein and Piesporter Goldtropchen Pradikats. The most recent change comes in the 2011 vintage. Using only the oldest estate vineyards, Nik has crafted an even better quality Estate Riesling in which all the grapes used are from two vineyard parcels that are 60 + years old. The result is a wine with much more complexity and character. Like all of the estate wines, only the natural ambient yeast is used for fermentation. The new “Estate Bottled from Old Vines” Riesling is of particular note.

About Masi Agricola Wines from Venice, Italy
The history of Masi is linked to one family and its vineyards in Verona, part of the Veneto. The name itself derives from the Vaio dei Masi, the small valley purchased at the end of the XVIII century by the Boscaini family, who are still the owners today.
Masi now has vineyards and historic estates in the best terroir sites of the Venetian regions.
Since 1973, Masi has collaborated with the Conti Serego Alighieri family, descendants of the famous poet Dante, on its estates in Valpolicella. More recently, a collaboration has been launched with the Conti Bossi Fedrigotti family, skilled and passionate winemakers in Trentino. These collaborations are part of an ambitious project aiming to rediscover the lustre of the farming and winemaking traditions of the nobility from the Venetian area.
Masi is a member of the Altagamma Foundation, which comprises the best of “made in Italy” with a small group of selected member companies that “operate in the highest echelons of the market and embody the style and culture of Italy, together with innovation, service, and quality.” Headed by Santo Versace, the Foundation includes the top Italian names in the worlds of fashion, design, tourism, food and wine. Masi is also a member of the Italian Quality Wine Institute – Grandi Marchi, which is comprised of nineteen leading wine producers.
