It is by far one of the most renowned wine regions in Germany and its history reaches all the way back into the middle ages. The Franconian wine country with its forgiving climate, beautiful countryside and fairytale like towns, is not only an ideal travel destination, it is also home to some of the most famous white wine grapes in Germany. For the most part, the Franconian wine regions is located along the southern banks of the Main River and profit from its continental climate. Called the Main-Triangle, the region around Würzburg makes up the center of this region which in total covers over 6000 ha of land.

法兰肯,是德国最著名的葡萄酒产区之一,它的历史可以追溯到中世纪时期。他有着德国最得天独厚的地质和天气。美丽的乡村,如童话般的城镇让他成为德国最受欢迎的旅游胜地,更出产了闻名世界的白葡萄酒。法兰肯产区在美因河的河岸南方,为大陆性气候。这片以伍兹堡为中心围绕四周的土地超过6000公顷,被誉为美因河三角洲。

The region produces 80% white wines of which Müller-Thurgau dominates the market. But in recent years, the trend towards red wine has increased and, to one’s surprise, the region has had some excellent Früh- and Sp?tburgunder.

法兰肯所种植的葡萄,其中超过80%都是以米勒托高为首的白葡萄品种。但是近些年,红葡萄酒的种植趋势开始提升。令人惊喜的是,法兰肯产区出产的蓝皮诺和黑皮诺有着相当出色的表现。

The Bocksbeutel is the traditional bottle in which Franconian wines are served and even though it has had a turbulent past, due to the European Union trying to standardize wine bottle sizes, it has overcome all hindrances and has prevailed as the trade sign of Franconian wines. In fact, within the European Union, this unusual bottle shape now enjoys the status of being protected by the law.

大肚瓶是法兰肯产区独有的传统葡萄酒瓶型。经过了许多动荡的时代,现在已经被欧盟标准化。他经过了重重困难后,现在已经成为了法兰肯产区葡萄酒的标志。事实上,这种特殊的瓶型专利已经受到欧盟法律的保护。

As for the name Bocksbeutel, its origins remain unclear and as a result, many theories have emerged. One is the resemblance to the low-German ancient word “Booksbüdel” which was a term for a sack (Beutel) used to carry one’s books. However, students of the language who have been to Franconia will know that Franconian German is far from the standard or low-German so this theory did not stand the test of time. It seems that the name is of a much more vulgar origin and is merely a descriptive term for a goat’s scrotum. Well, you can’t unsee it now.

大肚瓶之名的起源至今仍然有好几个版本。其中一个是说从地底德语“Booksbüdel”演变而来。这个词的意思是一种装书用的麻布袋。然而学习德语专业的学生们都知道,德国法兰肯产区和说地底德语语系的地区地相隔很远,所以这个理论并不怎么站得住脚。还有一个大家比较认同的说法是起源于羊的阴囊。当然,现在我们都无从考证了。
