Grape variety

Müller-Thurgau

Germany and Switzerland combine

Yes, this grape actually gets its name from a Mr Müller from Thurgau. Then active as a wine researcher in Germany, the Swiss Hermann Müller developed the flowery, peachy new variety in 1882. Unfortunately, it was not accepted into the German register of varieties, so he took the seedlings with him to Switzerland. Here they settled under the name Riesling-Silvaner. This was because Hermann Müller mistakenly thought his white creation was a cross between these grapes. His error was only discovered later: the actual parents of the Riesling-Silvaner are Riesling and the ornamental grape Madeleine royal. Meanwhile, the Germans realised what they had missed. Above all, vintners from Lake Constance would have liked to have planted the Riesling-Silvaner, but they were not allowed. Thus, in 1925, a young winemaker rowed across the lake at night, smuggling 400 seedlings across the border in a fishing boat. Thirty years later, the grape was officially named Müller-Thurgau. It is called by the exact same name in Thurgau.

Zurich: On the way to the top

With a cultivated area of 620 hectares, Zurich is the largest wine-producing canton in German-speaking Switzerland. The potential is great at prime locations on Lake Zurich and in the various river valleys. It is no surprise that a steadily increasing number of top wines are vinified here. The major variety is Pinot Noir. But white varieties also exceed exquisitely, such as Müller-Thurgau and the long-established Räuschling, as well as international varieties like Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. The wine-producing canton of Zurich is currently experiencing the most sustained upswing in quality in its history.

Eastern Switzerland: an intriguing puzzle

Eastern Switzerland has long been positioned on the northern rim of the climate zone where the cultivation of popular Swiss varieties is possible. Due to a warming climate, the vineyards of Aargau, Zurich, Schaffhausen, Thurgau and Graubünden are now in the zone where varieties such as Müller-Thurgau or Pinot Noir succeed excellently. But even long-established, almost-forgotten varieties such as Elbling, Räuschling and Completer are experiencing a renaissance.

Switzerland – A small country with enormous diversity

Switzerland is famous for its banks, watches, and cheese, but not necessarily for its wine. The Swiss didn't invent wine, but they have been extremely open and curious to it. Wine culture arrived in what is now modern Switzerland via several routes: from Marseilles to Lake Geneva and the Lower Valais region; from the Aosta Valley through the Great St. Bernard Pass to the rest of Valais; from the Rhone through Burgundy, across the Jura Mountains to Lake Constance; and from Lombardy to Ticino, and then on to Grisons.
