Wine estate Witwe Dr. H. Thanisch – Erben Müller Burggraef

"The holistic concept of FAIR' GREEN is convincing. It does not only consider sustainability aspects of the work within the vineyards but also the respect towards nature and the community. To me, FAIR'N GREEN is an important additive to our selfobligation of ecological viniculture. In combination, it helps us to preserve the cultural landscape for future generations to come."

Barbara Rundquist-Müller, Inhaberin

Wine estate Witwe Dr. H. Thanisch - Erben Müller Burggraef

Moselle, Deutschland

By admitting the wine estate Witwe Dr. Thanisch - Erben Müller Burggraef, FAIR'N GREEN welcomes another renowend winery from the Moselle. The eponymous vineyard "Bernkasteler Doctor" belongs to the best vineyards in the world and often mentioned in the same breath as Romanée-Conti (DRC) in Burgundy. It is definitely among the top vineyards in Germany. On an area of 14.25 hectares, the winery majorly produces Riesling in steep vineyards.

In 2007, Mrs. Barbara Rundquist-Müller bought the wine estate. She is the niece of Margit Müller-Burggraef, the grand daughter of eponymous Dr. Hugo Thanisch. Alongside her husband Erik and their two sons, Mrs. Rundquist-Müller leads the winery true to the motto: "Tradition and Innovation".

Managing director of the winery is Maximilian Ferger, a sympatic wine maker who first wanted to be a veterinary surgeon but reconsidered and decided to start studying wine making at the university of Geisenheim. He works at the winery Witwe Dr. Thanisch - Erben Müller Burggraef since 2008 and produces, not only top-notch Riesling, but also Pinot Noir, as he has known them from his apprenticeship in austrias wine region of Burgenland.

Lately, the winery built a new cellar, which oversees most of the vineyard and invites the visitor to a magnificent view over the whole Moselle area. Aspects of sustainability were included in the choice of building materials and guarantees high energy efficiency. Furthermore, rainwater reservoirs and compensational areas for boosting biodiversity are included as well.

The winery is a member of the FAIR'N GREEN association since 2015 and seeks an additional certification according to EU-Bio Standart, which is generally suported by FAIR'N GREEN. We are more than happy to welcome this renowned winery in our association.
