The farm "Wein- und Obstbau Hofmann GbR" is located in the municipality of Wiesenbronn (Steigerwald area) in the German Franconian wine growing region. The traditional family has been growing wine since 1750. Until the 1950s, a cooperage (Fassbinderei) was also operated. Of the total 21.5 hectares of farm land, 16.5 hectares are used for agriculture, two for fruit growing and three for viticulture. The agricultural and fruit-growing divisions are managed by Heinrich Hofmann, the viticulture since 2004 is managed by his son Mario. The vineyards comprise three hectares of vineyards in the individual locations Geißberg, Wachhügel (Wiesenbronn) and Kirchberg (Castell). They are planted with the white wine varieties Silvaner, Riesling, Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc, Bacchus and Müller-Thurgau, as well as the red wine varieties Pinot Noir, Blauburger, Dornfelder, Regent and Portugieser. The broad product range is divided into Basic, Summer (new Franconia), Premium (bottled in Bocksbeutel) and Superpremium (max. 45 hl/ha yield, aged in barrique). A wide range of fine spirits (fruit, marc) and liqueurs is produced in the in-house distillery.
