Rottingen Wine Museum
Museum in Röttingen
In Röttingen, the tradition of viticulture has thrived since the early Middle Ages. During the 9th and 10th centuries, wine production spread across Franconia, driven in part by the wine tithe that both religious and secular leaders found indispensable. By around 1570, the vineyards in the Tauber Valley had expanded to their largest extent, covering an estimated area of 14,000 hectares.
Today, the renowned “Röttinger Feuerstein” wine is predominantly produced by self-marketing winegrowers who continue the rich winemaking heritage of the region.
The Wine Museum in Röttingen aims to showcase the history of viticulture in the town and the Tauber Valley, closely connected to the Museum Vineyard. Visitors can explore the museum’s collection of historical tools from various eras, as well as artifacts like a former winegrower’s costume, offering a glimpse into the past of winemaking in the area.
