Erich Weber of Hofgut Falkenstein makes ultra-traditional, dry-tasting Saar Riesling. He likes to call himself "Winzer Weber" (winzer is German for winegrower). The emphasis is on the work in the vineyards. With his tan and rugged face, he looks the part, too. Erich ferments exclusively with wild yeasts in old, wooden casks in a deep, cool cellar. Most of his wines end up either naturally dry (trocken) or off-dry (feinherb). Falkenstein, therefore, is one of the rare Saar producers that specializes in distinctive, bracing, light, dry wines bottled traditionally by the cask.
