Our Wine Estate


Weingut Wwe. Dr. Hugo Thanisch, Erben Thanisch, led by Sofia Thanisch, has a long tradition. It is documented that the wine estate dates back to 1636 and includes eleven generations.

The historian Christian von Stramberg wrote in his book Das Moselthal zwischen Zell und Konz (The Mosel Valley between Zell and Konz) already nearly 200 years ago:

„HERR THANISCH VINIFIES VERY FINE WINES, AS WELL AS BEING PROBABLY THE MOST IMPORTANT OWNER IN THE LOCAL DISTRICT.“

The speech was by Johann Anton Thanisch, the great-great-great grandfather of today’s wine estate owner.

At the end of the 19th century, the estate became famous when the wines were to be found on the wine lists of the best-known hotels and restaurants and served at the royal court—and not only in Germany.

At the auctions of the Association of Natural Wine Auctioneers, which later became the VDP (Association of German Prädikat Wine Estates),  Wwe. Dr. H. Thanisch was a founding member and regularly achieved the highest prices with its wines.

In 1884, our family’s manor house was built, which is still today the home of the estate.
