One of the oldest wineries in the region, cellar build by the monks in 1509- Weingut Moenchhof

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.
