German Franken wines

Franken is a wine region in northern Bavaria, Germany, located along the river Main. The region is known for its steep vineyards, which are planted on slopes of up to 45 degrees. Franken is one of the smallest wine regions in Germany, but is highly regarded for its high-quality terroir wines.

The most famous grape variety grown in Franken is Silvaner, which is known for its mineral character and fresh acidity. Franken Silvaner wines are typically medium bodied, with flavors of green apple, citrus and a subtle spiciness. The region also produces a range of other grape varieties, including Müller-Thurgau, Bacchus and Riesling.

Franken wines are often labeled according to their sweetness level, with the most common levels being Trocken, Halbtrocken, and Lieblich. Franken Trocken wines are typically crisp and refreshing, with a clean finish. Franken Halbtrocken wines have a slightly sweeter profile, with aromas of ripe fruit and a hint of residual sugar. Franken Lieblich wines are the sweetest style, with a rich, honeyed character.

The Bocksbeutel bottle is the trademark of wine from Franken. It has been produced mainly along the Main for more than 1200 years.
