Join our Würzburg wine trip during a Main cruise with The River Cruise Line. Würzburg and wine are inextricably linked, with many wine festivals taking place in the city and the surrounding Franconian wine country. We go behind the scenes at Bürgerspital, one of the largest and most important wine estates in Germany. Our guided tour starts at the estate courtyard and takes you to the wine presses before continuing through the wine cellars, taking in one of the most beautiful cellars of precious wood barrels in Germany and the treasure chambers that protect the oldest wine from the Stein appellation. We also see the filling and shipping departments, and end our tour with an obligatory glass of wine.

 Facts:

• The Bürgerspital wine estate covers 120 hectares
