The wines keep constant high level and are usually the best in their respective category in the area. Weaknesses, there is little, but can occur in difficult vintages. However, this must be balanced in good years with particularly compelling assortments so that an operation can hold the status. In most cases you can blindly buy.

The winery is located in the city Würzburg (Area Maindreieick) in the German growing area Franconia, The traditional Hofkeller was already founded in 1128, making it the oldest winery in Germany. It has been in permanent possession of the ruling power since the 12th century. These were the bishops of Würzburg, who were also dukes of Franconia, from 1814 the Bavarian royal family under the name Royal Bavarian Hofkeller (with interlude of the Grand Duke Ferdinand of Tuscany 1806-1814) and finally from 1918 the Free State of Bavaria under the name State Hofkeller Würzburg. The company was run as a teaching and sample good (see also under Weinbaudomäne ). Built in Baroque style between 1720 and 1744, the residence became a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1981. In the cellar vaults is the treasury, The oldest wine stored in this wine library is a vintage 1874. Since 1950 there are Bocksbeutel rarities preserved all locations, grape varieties and vintages.
