Historic estate in the German wine-growing region of Franconia in the city of Würzburg with the full name "Bürgerspital zum Heiligen Geist". The Würzburg patrician Johannes von Steren (1270-1329) made an estate at the current location available for the admission of people in need of care and thus established the foundation. The "New Hospital" (later renamed the "Citizens' Hospital") was officially founded in 1316, which was confirmed in a document by Pope John XXII (1244-1334) in 1320. This makes the estate one of the oldest wineries in Germany and Europe. The founding family pledged 13 acres of vineyards as security. Over the centuries, it grew to its present size.
