No Nonsense Frankfurt Souvenirs February 2017

Wine shop Frankfurt am Main „Weingut Stadt Frankfurt“

Are there any other Frankfurt am Main souvenirs than cotton bags, German cuckoo clocks (which have nothing to do with Frankfurt at all), and snow globes … or other dust collectors?
Yes, there – definitely – are!

In former times rich cities like Frankfurt am Main used to have their own vineyards. The city of Frankfurt am Main bought its own vineyard in 1803 and still possesses it. There is a wine shop only two minutes walking distance from the “Römerberg” which is called “Weingut Stadt Frankfurt” (vineyard of the city of Frankfurt) selling the wines from these very vineyards.

Here you can taste and buy the famous Rheingau wine. The wine bottles can be wrapped in beautiful gift boxes (coming for 1, 2, 3 or 6 bottles of wine). You can also buy liquors, little wine glasses, or just individual bottles. The assortment – which consists of “Riesling” as well as “Weiß- and Spätburgunder”, “Chardonay”, “Cabernet”, and “Sauvignon” – will surely delight the wine lover’s heart.

In 1994 the city of Frankfurt leased its vineyard in Hofheim am Main to the “Rupp family” who have been wine makers in the 10th generation now and the Rupp family is also running the wine shop “Weingut Stadt Frankfurt”.

The entrance to the wine shop is a little hidden – even though very centrally located. The attractive wrought iron sign with the Frankfurt municipal coat shown in the picture above left will lead you the way. The wine shop is situated in the historical part of the Römer building which also makes your visit quite interesting.
