The winery is located in the municipality of Bürgstadt in the German wine-growing region of Franconia and there in the south-western area of the Main valley between Spessart and Odenwald with the name Churfrankn. The Fürst family has been growing grapes since 1638. In 1979, Paul and Monika Fürst built a new estate building in the middle of the vineyards of Bürgstadt's Centgrafenberg. Paul Fürst, who has been running the winery together with his son Sebastian since 2007, is one of the pioneers of barrique vinification in Germany. Viticulture engineer Sebastian Schür is responsible for the outside operation. The vineyards comprise 21 hectares of vines in the single vineyard sites Centgrafenberg and Hundsrück (Bürgstadt) with Pinot Noir and Riesling, as well as Bischofsberg (Großheubach), Karthäuser (Volkach) and Schlossberg (Klingenberg). The red wine varieties Pinot Noir ( Spätburgunder) with a good half of the stock and Frühburgunder, as well as the white wine varieties Riesling, Weißburgunder (Pinot Blanc), Chardonnay and Silvaner are cultivated.
