Vineyard: Donnersdorfer Falkenberg
The Falkenberg is probably the most beautiful vineyard in Franconia. Characteristic for it are the many vineyard cottages. It is possible to hike on the paved paths between vineyards, hedges and meadows and enjoy the nature. If you need even more exercise, you can climb the Zabelstein from the Falkenberg via various hiking trails. In addition, the Falkenberg is also part of the Steigerwald panoramic hiking trail between Bamberg and Bad Windsheim.
In Falkenstein, a small idyllic district of Donnersdorf, the Dörflein family runs their winegrowing business in one of the most beautiful vineyards in Franconia, the Donnersdorf Falkenberg.
The small vineyard parcels with their approximately 50 vineyard cottages exude a special charm. The vineyard site is located in the area of the wine panorama Steigerwald and between the charming cities of Würzburg and Bamberg. The vineyards nestle on the sun-drenched foothills of the Steigerwald below the Zabelstein. With an altitude of 489 meters, it is an ideal destination for hikers and cyclists.
Viticulture is practiced in the family already in the fourth generation. The grape varieties Bacchus, Müller-Thurgau, Silvaner and Acolon are cultivated.
Through painstaking manual labor, the winery achieves that they can harvest healthy and sunlit grapes. These form the basis for fruity and expressive wines. Modern, cellar-technical procedures such as cold fermentation, contribute to the fact that the quality from the vineyard is also noticeable in the glass.
But only those who taste can be enthusiastic about these wines. Therefore, visit us and get to know our wines.
The pitch offers a direct view of the beautiful vineyards, small fields and the forest, which is only a few minutes walk away and invites you to go hiking.
You are welcome to fill up your battery and your water tank with us.
Your family Dörflein would be pleased about your visit.
The area is particularly suitable for cyclists, mountain bikers and for hiking. In just under an hour you can walk to the castle ruins of Zabelstein with its lookout tower and with a far-reaching view of the Franconian countryside. Below the Zabelstein lies the hamlet of Neuhof with its arched park and the adventure farm. On hot days you can cool off at the natural swimming lake "Gipssee" near Donnersdorf. For the physical well-being the inns in the neighboring villages offer themselves. A special experience is a wine tasting at the Falkenberg or working in the vineyard.
For day trips, the cities of Gerolzhofen, Volkach, Würzburg, Schweinfurt or Bamberg with their many sights come into consideration. Thanks to the excellent network of bike paths and the proximity to the Mainradweg, you can also easily reach these destinations by bike.
