The traditional winery is located in the municipality of Iphofen ( Steigerwald area) in the German wine-growing region of Franconia. The winery has been in the family since 1630. After the Second World War (1939-1945), Hans Wirsching laid the foundation for today's estate. He was largely responsible for naming the best Iphöfer site the Julius-Echter-Berg. From 1966 onwards, it was developed into a leading business in the 14th generation by Dr. Heinrich Wirsching and his brother Hans. In the meantime, the business is managed by Andrea Wirsching and her sister Lena will continue the female leadership. Dr. Uwe Matheus is in charge of operations, and Dr. Klaus-Peter Heigel is the cellar master.
The glossary is a monumental achievement and one of the most important contributions to wine knowledge. Of all the encyclopaedias I use on the subject of wine, it is by far the most important. That was the case ten years ago and it hasn't changed since.Andreas Essl
