Main Hell

Single location in the community of Bürgstadt (Mainviereck area) in the German wine growing region of Franconia. The name has no religious background, but is derived from "Mainhelle", which is the name of the quarries opposite Bürgstadt. In the early Middle Ages, mottled sandstone was quarried and worked here before being delivered to the large church buildings on the Rhine and Main. The south-east facing vineyard, with a 50% slope, comprises almost six hectares of vineyards on Bundsandstein and sand. The Juliusspital winery, for example, has a share.
