Miltenberg for a wine weekend

For the last wine village on the Main on our wine weekend in the Franconian wine country, we first leave the river banks and drive to Miltenberg on the Main in Churfranken. Miltenberg is particularly interesting for wine lovers because - in contrast to the previously mentioned wine locations - more red wine is grown here. The region owes this to the loamy and clayey red sandstone soils and the location in the basin between the Odenwald and the Spessart. This basin position ensures a particularly mild climate. Therefore, Burgundy wines grow under perfect conditions on the Main slopes around Miltenberg. Of course, Miltenberg also celebrates wine.

- Burgstadt Wine Culture Night (11.06.2022)
- Miltenberger Weinherbst (Fri. 23.09.2022 - Mon. 03.10.2022)
