The legend says that in the 14th century, the Kurfürst (electoral prince) Boemund II of Trier fell very ill with a fever during his stay in the Mosel Valley. No medicine and none of his famous doctors was able to cure him.

However, a small barrel of the finest wine from the local vineyard was chosen and served to the prince, with the explanation that this was the best medicine. After drinking it, the Kurfürst recovered completely. He summoned the grower of the vines to thank him and then gave him the vineyard as an award of honor. The wine was known as the "Berncasteler Doctor," hailing from what is now the most expensive vineyard site in Germany.

Visitors from all over heard of the wine's powers, and even to this day, people drink it hoping to cure their ailments.

The vineyard measures only three hectares, with approximately one hectare belonging to Weingut Dr. Thanisch, Erben Müller-Burggraef.

Come by and taste the famous wine along with a few others from the area, meet Barbara Rundquist-Müller who owns and learn why she thinks these wines are still very special.

This is an open tasting so reservations are not required.
