Born between 1882 and 1891 from the crossing of Riesling Rhenish and Madaleine Royal by the hand of prof. Hermann Müller, Müller Thurgau is a vine that matures best in the mountains and that in the Cembra Valley, a territory sheltered from mountains and woods and characterized by porphyritic soils and a strong temperature range, has found its ideal habitat. From the vinification of its grapes, a pale straw yellow white wine with greenish reflections is obtained, a very evident aromatic component, with hints of aromatic herbs, elderberry, tropical fruit and citrus. Sapid, mineral, with pleasant acidity: typical characteristics of mountain wines.
