The history of Hans Wirsching winery reads like an epic family saga, and one with fine wine at its center. One of the oldest wine estates in Germany, its roots in the charming medieval town of Iphofen can be traced back to 1630. Its wine-producing story encountered an obstacle in the late 19th century when phylloxera destroyed Europe’s vineyards and, in the following decades, the family vineyards were nearly abandoned. However, returning from war in 1918, Hans Wirsching lovingly rebuilt the vineyards, and the rest is history.
Today this pioneering 14th generation winery cultivates Silvaner, Riesling, Grauburgunder, Weissburgunder, Scheurebe, and Spätburgunder. Hans Wirsching is famed for its high-quality dry styles and its Scheurebe is known around the world.
This eco-certified estate has been a VDP member since 1983 and produces 520,000 bottles of wine a year.
