Debra Meiburg MW Meets the Winemaker 144: Sofia Thanisch, Weingut Wwe. Dr. H. Thanisch
Debra meets with Sofia Thanisch of Weingut Wwe. Dr. H. Thanisch, a specialist Riesling producer located in the Mosel Valley, Germany. Sofia is the great granddaughter of the winery’s founders, and the fourth generation of women involved in the business. Debra and Sofia talk about just what causes Mosel Riesling to be so elegant, and why she believes it to be the very best grape variety worldwide. She explains why Mosel Riesling (vs Riesling from the rest of the world) is such a niche product and how the style varies from most other Rieslings, and why this is a compliment to Asian cuisine. They talk about what makes a truly great wine, what makes or breaks a vintage and why Mosel Riesling is drinkable vs sippable.
