Weingut Bürgerspital zum Hl. Geist
Top quality, tradition and modernity - this is what the more than 700 year-old winery in Franconia stands for. The Riesling, Silvaner and burgundy grape varieties are mainly grown on the 120 hectares of vineyards and are filled in Bocksbeutel. The most precious treasure is the unique vineyards, especially the Würzburger Stein and the Stein-Harfe. The winery itself is part of the Bürgerspital foundation zum Hl. Geist, the original foundation purpose of which was the care of those in need, continues to this day. This social commitment is supported by a contribution which is made for every bottle of wine sold.
Cellar Tours and Wine Tastings for Groups
During the Bürgerspital's public guided tours you can learn everything you have ever wanted to know about wine. The tour through the 700-year-old winery reveals the entire process, starting from the grape to the bottling into the Bocksbeutel, the traditional Franconian wine botte. Beginning at the wine press hall through the cellar with modern stainless steel tanks to one of the most beautiful and oldest oak barrel cellars in Germany. It is a sight which delights, because it is here that the best wines mature. You need to gibe yourself some time out and travel back to 1540. The oldest authentic white wine in the world rests in the treasure chambers of the Bürgerspital. At the end of the tour you will receive a small Bocksbeutel, which you can enjoy at home.
