How viticulture made a career in the zeiler and sander area

To a lecture with numerous pictures on the topic "stories&" stories about the wine in our homeland" the SPD local association entertained numerous sander in the "hummer-scheuern". Ludwig leisentritt from zeil received a great deal of attention, as can be seen from a message from the sander SPD. Chairman paul hummer thanked local historian and former SPD chairman leisentritt for putting together a piece of local history.
Monks of the bamberger monastery michelsberg were already cultivating wine in the zeiler area 1000 years ago. On the zweidler map from 1598 you can see where wine was grown – in principle everywhere where the sun was very good. The first documented mention of sand dates back to 1139, and the text is about wine and a vineyard. Later, vineyards were mentioned in about ten sander parishes.
Vineyard sites in the coarse site of zeiler kapellenberg – which also include the opposite vineyards – have such pious names as kapellenberg, monchshang, pfarrerspflocken, abtsleite, pfaffenberg, nonnenberg and himmelreich (krum).
In a law book of the bishop of bamberg from the year 1348 already brache vineyards are mentioned. Fritz leisentritt, an ancestor of the speaker, paid at that time for such a fallow vineyard to the bishop six heller tax.
The word wine appears countless times in the bible. One of the most famous parables of jesus is the story of the workers in the vineyard: the vineyard owner gives all the workers exactly the wage that was necessary in those days to feed a family for a day. Workers who started to work later also received the same amount of money. This is a step towards the demand for the right to a minimum subsistence level for all, as mentioned in the parable. And it is more or less in line with the SPD’s demand that every employee must be able to live from his or her work. "If jesus was to descend on the world again, he would have to become a social democrat", said ludwig leisentritt with firm conviction.
Wine has always played a role in poetry as well. Wine and women were mentioned by poet johann wolfgang von goethe in one breath when he wrote down frivolous sayings. In the abt-degen-stube in ziegelanger stands this moderate version: wine was long considered a kind of means of payment. From the wine the ecclesiastical and secular lords obtained a part of their income. Numerous services in the community have been remunerated with wine, including activities in the ecclesiastical field.
Beginning of the 19. At the beginning of the twentieth century, there was a decline in winegrowing. Beer was the drink of the future. On the hillsides around zeil, hops and clover were increasingly grown instead of vines: hops for the beer-thirsty, clover for the cattle. From ebelsbach there is another photo of a hop garden, where you can see the wax, which is rather rare there today. End of the 19. At the beginning of the twentieth century, hop cultivation predominated in the zeil area, leisentritt reported.
In the meantime, however, wine in the region has experienced a major upswing. In addition to the move towards quality viticulture, two factors were decisive: the establishment of winegrowers’ cooperatives and vineyard consolidation.
A giant step forward was taken with the founding of the "abt-degen-weintal" made possible by the initiative of burgermeister bernhard rub (sand). According to leisentritt, this put marketing on a successful footing.
