The oldest wine cellar in Würzburg, dating from 1576 with its 250 metre long corridor, is still the heart of the wine production in the Juliusspital. In the large wooden barrels, 220 in total, mature wines from the most valuable vineyards in Franconia.
As in previous years, the 2021 wine year got off to its usual mild start. In mid-February, the thermometer reached double-digit frost temperatures with minus 17° Celsius. Fortunately, however, the vines were unimpressed. The frequent and abundant rainfall in June and July required intensive foliage work and plant protection measures. In these weather conditions, downy mildew and powdery mildew spread rapidly. Cool nights and sunny, not too hot days in September and October promoted the ripening and development of aromas. The grape harvest began in mid-September.
