Weingut Hans Wirsching – Viticulture since 1630
Welcome to the Home of Silvaner
„Franconia is our home and our identity. On the slopes of the Schwanberg, we accompany our vines as they bring heaven and earth together in their grapes, which we transform into distinctive wines in the cellar.”
Drinking wine is not only a brief moment of pleasure; it is an attitude to life. Like music or art, wine can inspire, to surprise, to awaken joy. Our ancestors’ attitude to life was already appreciated when they started growing wine in the 17th century. With passion and hard work, successive generations of the Wirsching family have succeeded in creating wines of exceptional elegance, clarity and expressiveness, which today receive international awards.
We owe this success to our outstanding team and the exceptional soils around the Schwanberg in Iphofen. Our almost 90 hectares of vineyards stand predominantly on gypsum keuper, formed in the lagoons of the dinosaur age and full of plant minerals. This unique terroir shapes our wines with its herbaceousness and richness, especially true of our Silvaner wines, which have become our trademark and are typical of the Franconian region. In addition to the Silvaners, our Scheurebe wines and Rieslings are also among the estate’s flagships – and with our innovative blends, wood barrel-aged Pinot varieties and multi-award-winning sweet wines, we prove that there is much more to us.
We look forward to your visit!
Your Wirsching family.
