Christoph Thörle
Thörle, Rheinhessen, Saksa

"The Thörle Estate dates back to the 16th century. The Thörle family owns excellent parcels in Saulheim’s Grand Cru and Premier Cru vineyard sites with a large diversity of terroir. Since 2006, the fortunes of the wine estate have been in the hands of the next generation in the form of Johannes and Christoph Thörle, who manage the winery with innovative skill and set the estate’s focus more on the traditional varietals Riesling and Pinot Noir. The Thörle brothers obtain their distinctive, mineral Riesling and delicate Pinot Noir from the characteristically calcareous limestone-soils of Saulheim’s single vineyards Hölle, Schlossberg and Probstey.

 

In recent years, the brothers gained a great deal of praise for their individual approach to vinification and pressing techniques. In order to ensure the maximum extraction from the grapes, the Thörle apply mash retention times to white grapes and use the estate’s own yeast for the fermentation process instead of resorting to pure-cultured yeast from the lab. The resulting wines are full of character – they possess a depth of flavor and boast a high potential for maturing.

 

Today, the Thörle estate ranks among the best producers in Rheinhessen. Because of hard work and being stubbornly quality focused, Thörle wines receive a lot of accolades, but complacency is taboo. With every vintage, the Thörles are ever striving to be better than before."

WEIGUT THÖRLE

Weingut Thörle sijaitsee Saulheimin kukkuloilla Rheinhessenissä. Alueella on tuotettu viiniä satoja vuosia ja Thörlen perhe möi rypäleet lähinnä muille tuottajille vuoteen 1985 saakka. Tämän jälkeen pojat Christoph ja Johannes ottivat vastuun perheyrityksestä ja alkoivat pullottaa viiniä Thörle-tuotemerkillä. Veljesten visio oli selkeä alusta lähtien - tuottaa parasta mahdollista viiniä Saulheimin alueelta.

That day Marc invited his father to lunch and he chose of Sumarroca cavas Nuria Claverol, one of the most interesting wines produced by Sumarroca. He was really impressed with the quality and style and he started to talk about it. Just behind, one of the members of the Family was listening to the comments Marc was saying about the wine.

Arvostetut italian punaviinit, Nebbiolosta.

Alessandro Guagliardi, lover of wine for a very long time, after graduation he entered the world of work in totally different sectors, but is now more than 15 years that he has transferred his passion for wines, in his work.

He is proud to make known the quality of Italian wines in the world, and in particular wines from wine-growing areas, considered as still little-known gems.

L’alto Piemonte with its historic Nebbiolo grape-based wines (Ghemme DOCG and Gattinara DOCG), but also the easier approach wines (red and Rosè) always based on Nebbiolo grapes, are certainly a unique example, and Alessandro can't wait to be able to illustrate them telling the story of particular area of Alto Piemonte, in a tasting that you can do with him.
