Berncasteler Doctor

The legendary Berncasteler Doctor vineyard is located behind the village Bernkastel and is one of the most famous vineyards in Germany.

This 100% steep site with a South-South-West orientation consists of medium deep, stony, loamy weathered argillaceous schist. Planted with up to 80 year old wines, full-bodied, spicy wines are grown here. The South-South-West orientation of the vineyard guarantees optimal sunshine throughout most of the day.

The Riesling wines from the Berncasteler Doctor are among the most  famous and noble white wines in the world.

Plush, with an impressive clarity to the apricot and apple tart flavors, which

The lusciousness forms a wonderful interplay with cheese towards the end of a meal. Try "The Doctor" with Stilton or a mature Brie style. The wine has even enough power to be partnered with a Roquefort.
