I met SJ at Sabor this week for an introduction and lunch with Nik Weis famed 3rd generation winemaker of St Urbans-Hof in Mosel. A man who grows legendary Riesling on steep, slippery, slate vineyards.
I approach a table for 5 (4 guests already seated). Martin, St Urbans-Hof’s charming ambassador, introduces himself. Serge takes my overcoat and I turn to the man I assume is The Nik Weis. He offers his hand. I’m sure I hear him say, “I’m Mike” and I say,”Sorry; what is your name?” …and of course he says, “Nik”.
Thats how cool I am.
You can find a handful of his vibrant, mouthwatering wines at Sherbrooke Saturday.
