Müller-Thurgau is a white grape variety. This cultivar was developed in 1882 by the scientist Hermann Müller from the Swiss canton of Thurgau. After gene research around the year 2000, it has been determined that this is a cross between the Riesling Weiss and Madeleine Royale, a seedling of the Chasselas. With a worldwide planting of more than 40,000 ha, it is a very successfully grown grape. It is a grape variety that places relatively few demands on soil and weather. Wine from this grape has mild acids, is fruity and can best be drunk young.
