The wine-growing heart of the Free State beats in Franconia. Here, more than 6,000 hectares of vineyards provide you with top quality white wines – in the unmistakeable bulbous “Bocksbeutel” bottle, of course. The red wines from the region are also popular specialities.
Franconian wine: the taste of homeWith a glass of Franconian wine, you will experience the taste of the Franconian homeland: enjoy the mild climate and the view of the vine-covered slopes with every mouthful. The cultivation of vines has shaped the way of life of the people of parts of Franconia for 1,200 years. When you drink the wine, you will taste the love of the vintners for their products – whether it is the light Bacchus, the fruity Scheurebe or the popular Silvaner.
The Franconian Winegrowers' Association represents the region's vintners as an umbrella organisation. On the association's website, you can find a lot of information relating to the Franconian wine region, for example an events calender, travel trips and recipe ideas.
Travelling in Franconia: viniculture and hospitalityAs a visitor in the Franconian wine region, you will soon acquire the taste: cosy wine cellars, tasting rooms and convivial wine festivals invite you to enjoy some wine. Both the cities with good transport links such as Nuremberg or Würzburg and the smaller places offer you with a wide range of options.
The website of the Franconian Winegrowers' Association provides you with a variety of offers for wine experience trips. Take a wine walk, for example, in which you will get to know the Franconian hospitality and accompany the vintners during their work – wine tasting included!
