Dear wine enthusiasts,
Dry Silvaner, Scheurebe and Riesling wines have been our family's specialty for generations! The original winery of our estate is located in the village of Iphofen, Franconia's 'historic treasure box'. It is the Gypsum Keuper soil that characterizes the terroir of our Premier Vineyard Sites, of which the Julius-Echter-Berg is the most famous. There, we carefully cultivate our vines, harvest our perfect, fully ripen grapes and then lovingly guide our young wines to emerge as distinctively unique wines that will enrich your life.
Yours, The Wirsching Family
