Weingut Rudolf Fürst

The Fürst family has been involved in viticulture since 1638. In 1975, Paul Fürst's father Rudolf passed away suddenly, and at the age of 21 Paul took over the estate to carry on the tradition in the cramped Fürst residence in Bürgstadt. In 1979 Paul and his wife Monika started building a new estate on the outskirts of the town. This included a new residence and state of the art cellar atop the Centgrafenberg vineyard. The new site provides breathtaking views of the Main river valley and the picturesque medieval town of Miltenberg.

Under Paul Fürst's tenure the estate has grown from 2.4 to 20 hectares. Work in the vineyards is done with great care. It is all done by hand, and treatment of the vines and soil is near organic and as close to natural as possible.

Paul Fürst makes remarkably elegant wines for a region renowned for rusticity. He produces wines of many different styles. In addition to producing white wines, Paul Fürst's big challenge are red wines. In the mid-80's Paul began experimenting with new vinification methods more akin in style to red Burgundy. His 1990 Pinot Noir was a breakthrough and helped establish the variety as a serious category in Germany. In a blind tasting connoisseurs mistook the wine for a Burgundy from the Commune of Beaune. His top red wine is the Spätburgunder Spätlese "R".

The Rudolf Fürst estate is a member of the VDP and a founding member of the German barrique forum. Paul Fürst was "Vintner of the Year in 2003" in Germany and he received the Wine Award for "Wine of the Year" in Germany in 2004 with a 2001 Spätburgunder "R".
