Weingut Moenchhof is a winery in the Moselle region. It is one of the oldest wineries in the region. Cistercian Abbey used to own the winery in the past. In fact, documents from Pope Alexander III in 1177 show that there were vineyards in and around the Urzig village. The Himmeroder monks built the cellars in 1509 that are still in use today. Archaeological diggings near vineyards uncovered one of the most ancient and largest wine presses north of the Alps that shows that viticulture is going in this region for 2000 years.

After secularization, the Eymael family bought the estate from Napoleon in 1804 at a Paris auction. Robert Eymael owns the winery since 1994, and Volker Besch manages the work in the vineyards and the cellars. The winery aims to keep the harvest low so that there is no compromise in the quality of their wines.

The wines of the region reflect the features of the land. The vineyards are present at high slopes where there are optimum rainfall and sunlight, perfect for the growth of grapes. Their vineyards are present on the slopes of Erdener Treppchen, Urziger Wurzgarten, and the most prized, Erdener Pralat. The vines only grow the native and rootless Riesling variety of grapes used to produce their white and sparkling wines. The wines have a unique taste and aroma. Famous hotels, restaurants, and wine retailers all over the world value the quality and features of the Moenchoff Riesling wines.
