Mosel - German wine-growing region

The most ex- pensive sale of a vineyard to date took place in 1900 when the mayor of Bernkastel sold 4,300 square metres of the vineyard named “Doc- tor” to a certain Carl Wegeler – for 100 gold marks per vine. In today’s money that would be about 600 to 700 Euro per vine. The investment was worthwhile, however, as the vineyard is now one of the most famous in the world and best in the region. Its peculiar name derives from the fact that in 1630 the Archbishop Bohe- mund of Trier was ill but surprisingly recovered after a few sips of wine and thus awarded the title of Doctor to the vineyard.
