The Weis family has long understood the importance of such top sites; embracing the idea that wines are made in vineyards, not nearly so much as in cellars. This knowledge, coupled with the mindful goal of creating top quality wines, spurred them to acquire additional prime land.
Such was this passion that Hermann Weis, son of the founder Nicolaus, purchased in the 1980s exquisite parcels of the Saar's Ockfener Bockstein located a full 40km from Leiwen. He originally learned of these vineyards through his marriage to Ida, the daughter of a winemaker in the top wine village of Kanzem am der Saar.
Simultaneously he bought a contiguous 9ha parcel of vineyard land nearby in the Saar's Wiltingen Schlangengraben which added tremendously to the estate's holdings and future success.
Nik Weis, proprietor of the winery today, extended this impetus in the 1990s when he bought more unreconstructed (pre-flurbereinigung) parcels of Piesporter Goldtröpfchen and, in 2001, the Saarfeilser Marienberg. His marriage to Daniela, a native of the Mosel wine village of Mehring, added a parcel from that village's Blattenberg vineyard.
