Bernkastel

Hillside vineyard seen across the rooftops from Burgstrasse. This is the famous Bernkasteler Doktor. Rising 260 ft above Bernkastel at a remarkable steepness of 54 to 63 degrees, this small plot is one of the world’s truly great vineyards. White wines made from riesling grapes grown here are said to remain fresh and vital for 30 years or more. Extension tour by coach. Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany
