Franken - German wine-growing region



One of the most famous Franken vineyards and the oldest documented vineyard site by name in Germany is the “Würzburg Stein”. Steinwein has long been a synonym for Franken wine. A 1540s Steinwein is today still stored in the cellar of the Bürgerspital winery in Würzburg. Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, the German national poet, was a pronounced connoisseur of Steinwein. On 17 June 1806 he wrote to his wife Christiane: “Please send me some Würzburg wine, no other wine tastes as nice, and I am in a surly mood if I lack my usual favourite drink.” More information about the German wine region of Franken at: www.haus-des-frankenweins.de
