The tradition of the VDP-winery Wwe. Dr. H. Thanisch, managed by Sofia and Christina Thanisch, goes back to the year 1636 and covers twelve generations.
Almost 200 years ago (around 1830), the historian Christian von Stramberg wrote in his book ‘The Mosel Valley between Zell and Konz’:
“Mr Thanisch produces very noble wines and is the largest property owner in the region.”
We are talking about Johann Anton Thanisch, the great-great-great-grandfather of the current winery owner.
The winery achieved fame at the end of the 19th century, when our wines could be found on the wine lists of the most famous hotels and restaurants in the world, and were served in royale households.
At VDP auctions, Wwe. Dr. Thanisch wines regularly had the highest prices.
The “Villa Thanisch”, was built in 1884 and is still the seat of the winery today.
“We are committed to our tradition and quality orientation.”
