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.
The winter season was cold and damp, also unusual long. The shoot started very early, so did the bloom. The vines gained a boost of vegetation; this lead of approximately two or three weeks will last till the harvest. From the beginning of June, the year was very hot and extremely dry. On the one hand perfect conditions for a healthy vintage but on the other hand Juliusspital only had rainfalls with thunderstorms. At 20th of August - unbelievable early – they started to harvest.
