Weingut Schenk, a Winery with Marvelous Landscapes
Weingut Schenk is an exclusive family-run winery in the Randersacker area of Bavaria. The landscape around the estate is marvelous. One is easily mesmerized when taking a walk through the surrounding forest. The winery runs a cozy little wine cafe serving the best Franconian food in the region. Weingut Schenk has great tradition and history behind it, but the owners want to be known by their current work instead of their history and past achievements.
Weingut Schenk has a deep respect for nature, combining their rich traditions with modern and innovative processes to make the best possible wines.
In the Vineyards of Franconia
Weingut Schenk practices sustainable viticulture and works in the cellar to protect the environment and their vines’ health for the future. During spring, they water the vines and prepare new vines hoping to harvest ripe grapes to make excellent wines. The pruning of vines takes place in the winter after the nature becomes colorful and autumn arrives.
Grape Varieties of the Winery
The wines at Weingut Schenk tell of their grapes’ quality and the unique features of their terroir. The main grape varieties grown on their estate are Silvaner, Riesling, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Bacchus, Domina, and Scheurebe. The best grapes go into producing their famous red, white, rosé, sparkling, and dessert wines. The winery staff is amiable and loves passing their knowledge and experience on to guests.
