The wine from the homonymous vine, Müller-Thurgau, selected by the Swiss researcher dr. Hermann Müller in 1882, is a white fruit variety due to a cross between Rhenish Riesling and Madeleine Royal. The prerogatives of this variety are good adaptability to the cold climate of mountain regions and early ripening, in addition to good quality characteristics. For these reasons, cultivation has spread to Trentino, where it has found an ideal habitat in hilly terrain with altitudes between 500-700 meters above sea level, which is why Müller Thurgau is grown in the small and steep vineyards of the Val di Cembra, on the hills around Trento and in the suggestive Valle dei Laghi. In Valle di Cembra Cantine Monfort has selected some vineyards, placed in high vocation soils, to obtain a product with very particular organoleptic characteristics.

Production area: Trentino - Hilly area with steep slopes of the Cembra Valley (between 550 and 700 m).
Soil: sandy - gravelly - coarse fraction of volcanic origin.
Breeding system: Trentino pergola.
Harvest: Manual.
Vinification: Cold maceration of the grapes at 15 ° C. White vinification and fermentation at controlled temperature. Aging in steel.

Terre del Föhn

The company is located in Lavis, a pleasant village north of Trento, in the Trentino Alto Adige region. The Simoni family, with a wine tradition of over sixty years, aims to enhance, with its work, the characteristics of its land, using the cultivation practices in the vineyards that allow the vine to achieve a fundamental balance for the quality of the grapes. Also in the winemaking practices in the cellar, the Simoni family uses modern technologies in respect of Trentino oenology which boasts centuries of history obtaining a line of fine wines in the sign of local tradition and territorial specificity, which, appreciated and known, are distributed on the national market and international. The grapes for Terre del Föhn wines come from the vineyards, favorably exposed to the sun, of the Val di Cembra and from the hills above Lavis and Trento, as well as from Mezzocorona, Volano and Isera, in suitable areas and where the best environmental conditions are guaranteed for the cultivation of the vine. Thanks to the particular microclimate that is benevolently influenced by the influence of the Föhn, a hot and dry wind blowing in these lands, the vine finds a fertile place for the production of grapes with great potential. Throughout the year, the vineyards, partly owned and partly by carefully chosen winemakers, are the object of careful cultivation aimed at obtaining the maximum quality yield and preparing the vineyards at the most important, involving and demanding moment of the a producer: the harvest.
