Historical winery 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) provided an estate at the present location for the admission of people in need of care, thus establishing the foundation. The official foundation of the "New Hospital" (later renamed "Bürgerspital") took place in 1316, which was then confirmed in a document by Pope John XXII (1244-1334) in 1320. The founding family pledged 13 acres of vineyards as security for this. Today, the winery is owned by the "foundation under public law" and is managed by Robert Haller. Elmar Nun is the cellar master and Karl Brand the oenologist
