Iphofen und Tourist-Info
Gästeführer Weinerlebnis Franken
For many people Iphofen means wine.
In fact until recently wine production was the city’s main source of income.
That’s why it is simply a must to get to know Iphofen’s viticulture.
Admittedly in order to understand our wine in all its diversity
it is necessary to cover a lot of ground.
How did the first grapevine come to Franconia?
Which role has viticulture played in the history of the region and the city?
Which varieties of grapes are grown in the vineyards
and which types of wines do they later become?
How does this process work? What is the correct way
to prune a grapevine to obtain the highest-quality grapes?
How does geology fit into the picture
and what happened millions of years ago in the German Triassic Basin?
I will be glad to answer all these questions and many more while we are walking through the vineyards.
The guided tour can be adapted to your individual needs.
I would recommend spending, at minimum,
two hours of your time in the vineyards.
It’s also possible to arrange for a snack consisting of bread and cold cuts, provided by a local supplier.
Of course this snack includes wine because…
“Nothing makes you more familiar with the landscape
than the enjoyment of the wines which are grown on its soil
and which are illuminated by its sun.”
Ernst Jünger (German Philosopher)
