Fine wine vinegars for cooking...

Use our vinegars frugally for entrées, fresh salads, bold sauces, newly-picked vegetables, delicious desserts and for anything that your
personal tastes tell you a hint of vinegar could refine.
Celebrated aperitifs, our creations stir the appetite, sensitize the taste
buds and set the mood for a meal.
As „Trou Normand,“ an intermediate course, vinegar stimulates the
stomach and creates room for the main course. As a digestif, it counteracts
a feeling of fullness and underscores the light digestibility of
the food.

Herbal and wellness vinegars

Our work at Doktorenhof goes back to a century-old tradition. The use of vinegar was well known to nearly all cultures in former times. Up to 6000 years ago people in Babylon fermented well-tasting vinegar that has been known for healing effects against numerous diseases, too. In China, vinegars were produced and degusted regularely in order to guarantee a long life for prosperous authorities. Ever since then vinegar is seen as a symbol of life.

History shows that the curative virtue of vinegar was well known in synergy with assorted herbs throughout multitudinous cultures. In ancient Greece it was Hippokrates himself who dedicated his efforts to the production of vinegar for medical purposes. Arabian medics healed open wounds with vinegar. Famous mediaeval medics like Paracelus and Johan Agricola used it as the well proven cure.

Also famous German saint Hildegard of Bingen and Bazillus Valentinus praised the blessed and wide applications of this amazing resource.

... grapes from our own vineyards are the foundation of our work.
