… 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!

Craftsmanship – 100% done by hand
Authentic wines can only be produced in high-quality vineyards with a lot of hand work and passion. We believe that great wines are made with passion and meticulous attention to detail. Felix focuses on spending a lot of time in the vineyards, using environmentally friendly working methods, and only allows selective hand-picking during harvest time to ensure high-quality wines for customers around the world.
All our grapes are 100% hand-picked. Then, all hand-picked grapes run over a sorting table, where our employees sort the grapes by hand. From there, the grapes are gently poured into the wine press, which presses the grapes with minimal pressure. Thereafter must falls via gravity into the 2-story vaulted cellar (the only one in the Saar region). The grapes are vinified in small batches in wooden barrels or stainless steal tanks – an absolute commitment to quality. The wines under go a long and steady period of fermentation. Since we do not use any additional yeast or additives, all our wines are spontaneously fermented. Once the wine is ready, we fill it during the springtime. We then give the bottled wine a few months so that it can continue to mature on the bottle.
The wines have gained international recognition in short time. The wines from Weingut Würtzberg have scored +90 Points on Decanter, Wine Enthusiast, Jamessuckling.com and Wine Spectator.
The wines are available in our online shop. In case you are interested in international shipment, please contact us via e-mail.
