The Dr. H. Thanisch estate uses intuition and technology to determine the proper cultivation and right timing in harvesting their individual top wines. A large part of this is sustainable and ecological-oriented viticulture with no use of pesticides, herbicides (special herbs are planted to kill weeds), insecticides (use of pheromones instead), no chemical fertilizers (only mulch from pips, stems and skins of grapes) or heavy machinery, which compacts the slaty soils with nearly all work done by hand. Environmentally-friendly practices extend to the cellar where there is no use of artificial enzymes, sorbic acid (commonly used to stabilize wine), industrial cleaners and only minimal use of sulphur dioxide. Therefore, Thanisch attaches great importance to the care of the soil and the vines, conscientiously paying attention to low yields. At harvest, they consider physiological ripeness over the specific weight of the must. This is the reason for the high quality of the wine, as only the physiological ripeness guarantees fully ripened aromas and flavors.
