New wine tourism guide for Franconia: "Einkehren in Weinfranken"
Those who want to travel to Franconia not only because of landscape and culture, but also as a lover of Franconian wines, will now get a wine travel guide with an almost encyclopedic claim with Joachim Peukert's book "Einkehren in Franken". On 340 pages, journalist Joachim Peukert has undertaken "to make the wine cultural landscape of the Lower Main or Main quadrangle even better known and more popular".
A wealth of material from two years of research
The description of the Mainvierck from Michelbach to Homburger Kallmuth - that is to say the western entrance to the Franconian wine region, which is predominantly characterized by the red sandstone - is the prelude of a three-volume series, which is to serve as a further literary travel vademecum through Franconia, which is so multifaceted in terms of landscape and oenology, under the motto "Einkehren in Weinfranken - bei Woi', Worscht und Weck". In two years of research, Joachim Peukert, a native Franconian from Wasserlos near Alzenau, has visited and described in detail vintners, wineries and winegrowers' cooperatives, inns and hotels, but also classic sights such as churches, castles and medieval villages and towns. A map excerpt in front of the one- to two-page portraits of the individual places serves for quick spatial orientation. For culinary orientation, the typical Franconian "Häckerwirtschaften" are presented as well as traditional restaurants, country inns and sophisticated hotels. For hiking enthusiasts there are recommendations such as the "Red Wine Trail in Churfranken" from Großwallstadt to Bürgstadt and the "Churfrankensteig" between Erlenbach am Main and Klingenberg.
