OK, I'm really rusty...

Asbach Uralt is a brand of alcohol...brandy specifically comes to mind, but I think other types as well.

I think it says, "In Asbach-Uralt is the spirit of wines."

Hopefully, someone else can come along and confirm or correct for you.

I suspect it's a clever pun, as Asbach Uralt is a brandy, which is an alcoholic beverage, or "spirit", typically distilled from wine.

So it says : Asbach-Uralt is the spirit of wine...

You know those Germans and their fantastic senses of humor...

That's the gist of it... it's a pun, possibly a slogan of the company.
