Below the mighty Querfurt Castle, not far from the cycle path to the Himmelsscheibe, lies the municipal vineyard "St. Bruno". This was established in 2007 on the former vineyard of the House Monastery of the Noble Lords of Querfurt, Mariazell. The vineyard was named after St. Brun, one of the most famous representatives of this noble family. He was a close confidant of Emperor Otto III and worked at his court chapel. In 1002 Brun was appointed Archbishop of the Heathens. In this function he missionized the Black Hungarians, mediated in border disputes in the Caucasus and worked in the Kievan Rus. Following his example Adalbert of Prague, he went on a missionary journey to the pagan Pruzzi in Masuria. There he died in 1009. In Poland and Hungary "Brun von Querfurt" is still celebrated as a saint today. On the vineyard the grape varieties Gutedel, Weißburgunder and Blauer Zweigelt are cultivated. The wine pressed from the grapes bears the name "Edler von Querfurt". It is named after the noble family of the nobility Lords of Querfurt. This family expanded the castle extensively, provided archbishops as well as burgraves of Magdeburg and thus had a great influence on politics in the Holy Roman Empire. In 1496 the male line of the house of the Lords of Querfurt ceased to exist.     

The municipal vineyard "St. Bruno" offers the opportunity to enjoy a good drop of Querfurt wine on historical soil and in a magnificent natural setting in the northernmost wine-growing area of Europe "Saale- Unstrut".
