Winery Hans Wirsching is one of the most traditional and renowned wineries in Franconia. The family has been growing wine for centuries; since 1630! Today the company is led by Andrea Wirsching and Dr. Heinrich Wirsching.
On 90 hectares in and around Iphofen, mainly dry white wines from Silvaner, Riesling and Scheurebe are produced.
A number of wines are still bottled here in the typical Franconian “Bochsbeutel” bottle, whose name is taken from the word "book", because it fit like a bottle in the bag in which the monks and pilgrims carried their prayer book. It has been a trademark of special wines from Franconia since the early 18th century.

Hans Wirsching is the reference of Franken and the national and international wine press is also full of praise for their wines. Hans Wirsching works with great respect for nature and the environment and in a sustainable way.

The Hans Wirsching Iphöfer Julius-Echter-Berg Riesling Trocken Grosses Gewächs (VDP. Grosse Lage) comes from the Julius-echter-Berg vineyard, at an altitude of 300-400 meters, located north of Iphofen, about 100 km northwest of Nuremberg on a “Keuper” soil; (sediment of swamp-rich old-growth forests). The wine only ferments and ages on stainless steel to preserve the freshness.

The 2018 Riesling Iphöfer Julius-Echter-Berg "VDP. Erste Lage" is pure and elegant with a concentrated nose of crushed stone and perfectly ripe Riesling berries. Lush, round and salty, this is a very elegant and concentrated Riesling with mineral, crunchy acidity, and pleasant freshness and with a long finish. The wine certainly needs a few years to get into balance, but then you can enjoy it for decades.
