5 Stylish Vinotheques in Bavaria

Auch im Weinkeller des Bürgerspitals finden Verkostungen statt


No other city in Germany has such an intimate connection with vineyards. In the “Bürgerspital” you can taste the products of the best slopes in a classically elegant ambience featuring plenty of wood and glass as well as at public tastings (Fridays) and on cellar tours (Saturdays).

The “Weingut Höfler” in the Alzenau district of Michelbach in the far northwest of the Franconian wine region is best know for its fruity Riesling from the prime “Apostelgarten” vineyard. It is proffered in the wine shop with its cool, white surroundings, wooden accents and numerous cosy niches.

Weingut Schenk: Blick von den Weinbergen auf Randersacker


The “Weingut Arnold” has been at home in the historically protected estate since 1673. The setting for its outstanding white wines (Silvaner, Scheurebe, Weißburgunder and “Rieslaner” made from Riesling and Kerner) is a wine shop featuring a blend of exposed half-timbering and modern elements.

In the heart of the old town, the “Kultur- und Kommunikationszentrum”, which opened in 2008, offers several functions under one roof and is home to the “Vinothek im Kuk. Dettelbach”. Oak, shell limestone and steel come together to create the atmosphere for serving wines made by local winemakers.

Die Vinothek Iphofen


In the “Vinothek Iphofen” in this small wine village in the Steigerwald hill region, steel girders showcase the variety of local wines – instead of standing in orderly rows in glass cabinets, the bottles hang diagonally on unplastered walls. 20 members of the local cooperative present their wines here, from basic up to premium quality.
