Bavarians in general – and Passau natives most especially – are proud to look back on a tradition of beer brewing stretching back centuries. Less well known is the fact that the “city of three rivers” also has a close connection with wine production dating back to the year 1358. At the time, the Bürgerliche Heiliggeist-Stiftung Passau, which still exists to this day, became the owner of wine estates in the Wachau area right when it was first founded. Since 1963, the wine-growing area, which has grown to about 52,000 square meters and features Riesling and Grüner Veltliner varieties, is no longer operated by the organization itself, but rather by the tenants of the Salomon Undhof winery. Back then, like today, the philosophy was to offer both the people of Passau and other wine lovers the best possible products from the vineyards while benefiting the foundation, which operates two nursing homes in the heart of the city. The Heilig-Geist-Stiftschenke was founded with this aim in 1856 and still markets the well-known wines from the foundation in Passau to this day.
