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.

Double Platinum at Decanter World Wine Awards

We are pleased about one more international award for our sweet wines: At the renowned Decanter World Wine Awards 2021, our Trockenbeerenauslese wines of Riesling and Rieslaner (vintage 2019 and 2018, respectively) each received the platinum medal. This means even two Wirsching wines rank among the top ten German wines in this tasting. After receiving the award “Sweet Wine Maker of the Year 2020” (IWC) and the 1st place at the International Scheurebe Award, our sweet wines show once more that they belong to the best sweet wines in the world.


Review by Master-Sommelier Juck Furuya (Hawaii)

Master-Sommelier Chuck Furuya from Hawaii recently tasted a selection of our wines and he was “thrilled”: “Hans Wirsching & their wines should be very pertinent in today’s wine world. (…) This estate is world famous for producing the finest renditions of Silvaner in the world & does so in many different styles—from medium to full to full bodied, which has something quite profound to share to a very tasty, mineral driven “country” styled white wines, that has such pliability with a myriad of foods. (…) For me, the jewel of their line-up of wines, really is their Scheurebe bottlings. It really is Hans Wirsching in my humble opinion who is the shining star champion who shows the vast potential this grossly poo-poo-ed grape variety can offer.”



At our estate wine tastings in small groups are possible from June 1. We have prepared a tasting zone for you in our courtyard and look forward to your visit (current Corona regulations apply).

opening hours:
Monday – Friday: 8.00 AM – 6.00 PM
Saturday: 9.00 AM – 6.00 PM
Sunday: 10.00 AM – 12.30 PM

Stay healthy!

Press Reviews

“Nowhere is the density of excellent Silvaner greater than in Franconia. The vines are planted in the best locations and produce a dry white wine that goes excellently with food. State of the art are the bottlings of the Hans Wirsching winery in Iphofen.”
