The Bürgerspital is one of Germany´s largest wine growing estates with 300 acres. It is located in Würzburg, which is part of the Franken region. The estate is a founding member of the VDP association and offers vineyard sites like Würzburger Stein, Stein Harfe (=stone harp) or Würzburger Innere Leiste. They cultivate typical franconian grape varieties like Silvaner, Müller-Thurgau and Bacchus, aswell as some classics like Riesling, Pinot Gris and Pinot Blanc.
Despite the extremely dry summer, the physiological ripeness of our grapes was perfect, not last thanks to our deep soils. Our conclusion: The wines are fresh, elegant and very concentrated as a result of the small berries. The red wines - as usual in dry years - are of outstanding high quality. Robert Haller, director of the wine estate, is very pleased: "An exciting vintage meeting our expectations."
