Franken Wein - Franconian Wine

Wine is traditionally grown along the south pointing slopes of the river Main.
Franconian Wine is a natural product following the highest Quality Standards.
The Wine Standards were defined in 1582 by St. Benedict monks under the rule of Emperor Karl the Great.
Those finally resulted in the German Purity Law - Reinheitsgebot.

Bocksbeutel Buddha

Bocksbeutel - a special bottle

The traditional bottle for Franconian Wine is the Bocksbeutel.
There are many stories claiming the reason for the special shape - some of them of practical nature some of them of a more robust nature.

We simply like the outstanding and traditional design with it's shape that somehow reminds on a sitting Buddha.
... and by the way, Bocksbeutel do not roll around in your cellar.
