Wine List

Our dry white wines are produced from grape varieties largely unknown in the British Isles. The vines are tended with care and experience by individual producers who continue a long history of wine in a region east of Frankfurt am Main. Using the grapes from some of the most iconic Steillage vineyards in Franconia, wine makers go to great lengths to produce a world class wine. The best of these are bottled in the distinctive Bocksbeutel.
