Food Production

The favorable geographical and climatic conditions in Mainfranken allow the cultivation of many specialty crops. Besides sugar beets, fruit, asparagus and other vegetables, wine growing plays a key role. With the Stiftung Bürgerspital zum Heiligen Geist, the Juliusspital and the Staatlicher Hofkeller, the city of Würzburg is home to three big traditional wine estates. 

The oldest company still in existence in Würzburg is the Würzburger Hofbräu. The brewery was founded way back in 1643.
