Kerner Justinus

The German poet and doctor Justinus Andreas Christian Kerner (1786-1862) studied medicine and natural sciences in Tübingen (Baden-Württemberg). From 1819 he practiced as a doctor in vineyard, Among other things, he carried out scientific experiments on the influence of wine on the psyche, for example on the effects of Riesling on the nervous system in comparison with wines from other grape varieties. He had a very intimate relationship with the vines and the wine, which he also enjoyed and enjoyed. In prose and poetry he paid homage to the juice he loved and wrote numerous poems about wine, which were also set to music and became folk songs - such as the well-known “Wanderlied” (Well-drunk still the sparkling wine! Ade now, dear ones, must divorce) Ade now, you mountains, you fatherly house! It drives me far into the distance). His circle of friends included the poets Ludwig Uhland, Eduard Mörike and Nikolaus Lenau, In honor of him the new breed Trollinger x Riesling was created in 1968 at the Weinsberg Wine Institute Kerner designated. Incidentally, his son Theobald Kerner (1817-1907) wrote the text for the well-known wine song "Vom Kreislauf des Weines" (see under Quotes ).
