Liebfraumilch

historical brand wine from Germany. For the first time, the "famous women love milk to Worms" was mentioned in 1744. At that time this designation could only be used if the grapes grew in the area "as far as the tower of the Liebfrauenkirche casts its shadow". This meant the vineyards of the Capuchin monastery "Collegiate Church of Our Lady" in Worms in Rheinhessen, Unfortunately, however, later this geographically narrow term was extended to all Rhine wines and thus the ancestry diluted. In the course of Napoleonic Secularization became in 1808 the still preserved part of the monastery and most of the original vineyards of Worms Mayor Peter Joseph Valckenberg (1764-1837) acquired.
