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 “Kalb” vineyard, located east of Iphofen, about 100 km northwest of Nuremberg on a “Keuper” soil; (sediment from swampy primeval forests). The wine ferments and ages only on stainless steel to preserve the freshness.

The Hans Wirsching Iphöfer Kalb Silvaner Trocken VDP Erste Lage is a delicious dry, fruity Sylvaner. With aromas of hay, apple and melon in the nose. On the palate, the wine is slim, elegant, mineral, fresh with juicy acidity and a long, balanced finish.
