About us

The Bavarian State Institute for Viticulture and Horticulture (LWG) is one of the leading research institutions in Germany regarding all topics related to viticulture. With practice-oriented research projects our Institute for Viticulture and Enology (IWO) develops applicable solutions for the Bavarian winegrowing community. With around 20 hectares of vineyards we consistently pursue a sustainability strategy with a focus on ecologization, biodiversity and the most modern use of technology. Our research projects on climate change, digitalization, regulation of weeds and the Franconian Vine Protection Information System (F.R.I.S.) support the winegrowers in environmentally sound and modern viticulture. In our vinification facility we develop marketable wine profiles and styles as well as procedures for sustainable cellar management. The Institute is also responsible for business consulting and promotion of winegrowing enterprises. Together with partners from the regional economy, the wine tourism concept "Franconia – Wine.Beautiful.Country" is implemented and thus strengthens regional development in Franconia. The Institute also provides training and further education for Bavarian winemakers and distillers. The gained insights of the research are incorporated into the lessons of the College for Masters of Crafts and Technicians in Viticulture and Horticulture based at the LWG. For more than a century, winemakers and wine technologists in Veitshöchheim have been taught in our School the abilities they need to produce top-quality wines. Our deep roots allow us to classify the latest trends and methods and to pass them on. In the field of viticulture and oenology we are also the only technical school in Bavaria where students can continue their education to become technicians and prepare for the master craftsmans examination at the same time. Special highlights are also internships abroad (Erasmus+) and a wine project. read more
