Le Connaisseur sells Franken wines from winery Castell and Weigand.
The Francken wine region is bordered by the Rhön in the north, the Steigerwald in the east, the Tauber valley in the south and the Spessart in the west. The Franken winegrowers grow their grapes on more than 6000 hectares of vineyard land. The Silvaner, in particular, thrives optimally on the mussel-lime and crumble bottoms. He is the showcase of Franken viticulture. The aromatic Müller-Thurgau, the most widely grown grape variety in Franken, is processed by young winegrowers in a contemporary way and is therefore experiencing a renaissance. The share of white wine is about 80 percent, with the regional specialty Bacchus being of great importance in addition to Silvaner and Müller-Thurgau. De Bocksbeutel is the trademark of Franken wine. It has been mainly produced along the Main for over 1,200 years.
