The growing region is located on the northern edge of the federal state of Bavaria in Germany and is crossed by the River Main in a large W-shape. A special feature is that the Bavarian vineyards on Lake Constance around Lindau belong to the Württemberg wine-growing region. The vineyards cover 6,130 hectares, most of which extend between Aschaffenburg and Schweinfurt. All are planted on south-facing valley slopes on the banks of the Main or in side valleys of its tributaries. It is an ancient wine-growing region, as evidenced by a deed of gift from 777 to the monastery of Fulda, to which the royal estate of Hammelburg with eight vineyards (Saaleck Castle with Schlossberg) was granted. A description of the area between Randersacker and Würzburg dated 14 October 779 by Emperor Charlemagne (742-814) is documented.
