At Weinwirtshaus zum Schönfärber we can find brilliant vintage wines at sensational prices, with a set menu at the table (2 or 3 courses), mood music and a relaxed atmosphere. Welcome to the wine industry at Schönfärber, in which Thomas “The Wine Saint” Hertlein lives his motto: “It just has to taste good”.

“I was incredibly impressed by the selection of Sangioveses coming from Chianti Classico, Maremma and Virginia. I have been interested in wine soils for over 20 years and it was a great honor to have discussed about them with such talented Sommeliers sitting down together at my table.”

It was interesting and fun tasting the differences between wine regions, and identifying the characteristics of the grapes, soils and microclimates that yield wines of this great quality.
