Weingut Dr H ThanischThe Thanisch family has been involved in the wine trade for more than 350 years, with the oldest official documentation in Bernkastel dating 1636. The Thanischs purchased the famous Bernkasteler Doctor vineyard in the late 18th century. According to legend, the Doctor vineyard was given its name in 1360 by Archbishop Boemond II of Trier who was cured of a serious illness by drinking wine from this vineyard. The family firm enhanced their international reputation in the mid 1800s under the direction of Dr. Hugo Thanisch, a doctor of philosophy active in the county government. The estate is currently managed by Sofia Thanisch-Spier, the fifth generation of women to do so after the passing of the esteemed doctor.
