Extending across more than 250 acres, Bürgerspital Würzburg is one of Germany’s oldest and largest estate-wine producing estates. The Bürgerspital name has become virtually synonymous with this extraordinary terroir, known for its light, chalky soils that produce powerful and aromatic white wines. The German word “spital” means “hospital”, and here draws its origins from the original hospital, founded in 1319, for the sick and needy in Würzburg. At that time, the related vineyards were set aside to provide the necessary funding each year to support its operation. Today, the village of Würzburg is home to some 130,000 residents, and it is the heart of the finest winegrowing terroirs in Franconia.
