Bavaria – a world of wine
The heart of Bavaria’s wine growing is in Franconia
The renowned bocksbeutel-shaped wine bottle and prized top-quality wines enjoy worldwide fame. Connoisseurs love the distinctive flavour of Franconia’s dry, fruity wines. Some 6,000 hectares of picturesque vineyards provide some of the best white wines ever and the region’s red wines are sought-after specialities. The inimitable taste of the wine is a true experience as are the cosy wine bars, wine tasting venues and convivial wine festivals.
