Concorso Internazionale Vini Müller Thurgau - Val di Cembra
Alto Adige Valle Isarco DOC
The Müller Thurgau variety is a Riesling and Madeleine Royale hybrid created in Geisenheim (Germany) at the end of the 19th century by the Swiss botanist Hermann Müller, who gave it this name because he came from the Thurgau canton. This grape variety prefers the elevated and sunny hillsides of the Valle Isarco featuring a thinly structured soil. The colder climate of these higher altitude areas and especially the fresh night during grape ripening season give Müller Thurgau its typical freshness and that variegated bouquet to which it owes its frame.
