Welcome to Bürgerspital Wine Estate
Bürgerspital, a wine estate with 300 acres, is situated in a beautiful and historic courtyard right in the middle of Würzburg and is one of the oldest and largest wine estates in Germany. Bürgerspital wines have been awarded numerous prestigious national and international prizes and have won wine-tasting competitions held by celebrated sommeliers and wine journalists. This wine estate is a founding member of the VDP (Association of German Top-Quality Wine Estates). The VDP is the elite of Germany´s wine producers. A distinguishing feature all VDP wines show is the eagle on the neck of the bottle.
A combination of the estate’s proud tradition, the wonderful vineyards in their splendid locations, the fecund nature of the soil and the climate make up very fine unique quality wines.
