11,00

The first born, the one that has now grown up, supports himself and gives satisfaction to the family. Born from parents who were young at the time and who saw in the monovarietal of Muller grapes the possibility of doing great things. When we drink it, we think of the effort made to create the first vineyards and times gone by.

Müller Thurgau

Muller Thurgau is a grape variety obtained in 1882 by the Swiss Hermann Muller originally from Thurgau, hence the name, by crossing two varieties: the Riesling Rhenish and the Silvaner. Recent studies on its DNA seem to exclude the kinship with Silvaner, making it more inclined towards Chasselas, a vine grown in France but of Swiss origins used to produce table grapes.

The cluster is small, cylindrical, pyramidal, winged, moderately compact. The grapes are medium, ellipsoidal, with a thin greenish-yellow skin. The budding, flowering and veraison periods are medium. Due to its vegetative and enological characteristics, Muller-Thurgau is a vine that is very suitable for cultivation in cold climates and can also be vinified in years of low sun exposure. For these reasons it is widespread in Germany and in Trentino-Alto Adige and finds an ideal location in the vineyards of Borgo dei Posseri.
