Kochan & Platz and St. Urbans-Hof Winemakers Welcomed to Our Portfolio


The WineBarn is delighted to introduce new wine producer Kochan & Platz and welcome back St. Urbans-Hof to their diverse portfolio. Both wineries are amongst the best Riesling producers in the Mosel region - producing wines that reflect the soil, climate, orientation of the vineyards and the vintage precisely and clearly. Riesling is a versatile variety, ranging from light to full-bodied, from dry to noble sweet and from young to mature, but always a pleasure to drink.

Kochan & Platz

Kochan & Platz are two family businesses Kochan (Lieser) and Platz (Veldenz) that have been cultivating wine for generations. In 2015, they combined their rich knowledge, precise craftsmanship and intense passion for wine under one label. The result - more experience, a larger 10 hectare site, increased production and a wider variety of exciting events at the winery.
Their vines are grown on mineral-rich slate soil and are harvested using sustainable methods. Kochan & Platz’s multi-generational team combine tried and tested techniques with fresh ideas to develop new trends, whilst caring for their core range.
