The History of Dr. Thanisch

During the time of Dr. Thanisch, his white wines became famous worldwide. His two daughters continued the family tradition of winemaking and added ‘Erben Müller-Burggraef’ to the estate’s name. Today, Maximilian Ferger is in charge of the winery and has been managing the administration for over a decade. In 2015, a newly-built ultra-modern manor became the home of the winery estate.
