||Müller-Thurgau is an aromatic grape variety originating in Geisenheim, Germany. Its origins date back to the end of the 19th century, when it was obtained by cross-breeding Rhine Riesling with Sylvaner, by the Swiss oenologist Hermann Müller, originally from Canton Thurgau in Switzerland; recent DNA studies of this grape variety indicate that the cross-breeding actually originated from Rhine Riesling with Chasselas.

||This is further enhanced by the vast array of different aromas and flavours imparted by the various soils where the vineyards are sited.
||Guyot and Pergola simplex.
||The bunches are destalked and lightly crushed. The must is quickly cooled and left in contact with the skins for a few hours to facilitate extraction of the aromas. The grapes are then gently pressed to separate the must from the solids. A starter culture is then added to start off alcoholic fermentation, which takes place in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature of 16–18 °C.
||In stasinless steel. All the processing stages are carried out in such as way as to prevent any contact of the grapes and must with oxygen, so as not to oxidise the delicate aromas of this grape variety. The wine is left “on the lees” until the time of bottling.
||Great aperitif wine; excellent with vegetable risottos, pasta dishes and fish.
