Up to around 1980, wine was produced in the historical wine cellars of Kesselstatt Palace, branching out in all directions. In the 17th century, the cellars were built on parts of a Roman glassworks and stretched from the Cathedral Square to the former convent of Saint Afra. On approx. 4,000 sq m, the cellars provided enough space to accommodate 400 wooden wine casks with a capacity of 1.000 l each.
Nowadays, our atmospheric and heatable wine cellars are used as a storage room for our historical wine casks and for guided and entertaining wine-tastings.
