Alte Badstube am Doctorberg

single vineyard in the municipality of Bernkastel-Kues (Bernkastel area) in the German Moselle wine-growing region. The name refers to the exposed location on the famous Doctorberg; the meaning of "Badstube" is not known. The relatively small south-facing vineyard with 45 to 60% slope covers only 1.8 hectares of vines. The soil consists of weathered, dark clay slate with a high proportion of fine earth and humus. Riesling is cultivated here ungrafted. Shares in the site are held, for example, by the wineries Bischöfliche Weingüter Trier, Dr. Pauly-Bergweiler and Wwe. Dr. H. Thanisch Erben Thanisch. The picture shows the municipality of Bernkastel-Kues (Bernkastel area) with some, but not all, of the eleven individual vineyards. These are Alte Badstube am Doctorberg, Bratenhöfchen, Doctor, Graben, Johannisbrünnchen, Kardinalsberg, Lay, Matheisbildchen, Rosenberg, Schlossberg, Stephanus-Rosengärtchen and Weisenstein.
