Serrig is a municipality in the Trier-Saarburg district, in Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany. It is the uppermost wine village in the Saar region of Germany whose vineyards, are ‘only about a century old but are among the best in the valley,’ says Stuart Pigott (1995, p.36). Historically the Riesling here was used as a base for sparkling wines (Sekt), its naturally high acidity a reflection of difficult ripening conditions. When fully ripe, the Riesling can be outstanding. The main estate here is the State Domain (Staatlichen Weinbaudomänen). See also Irsch.
