E&M Müller-ThurgauTabula Rasa Shop
100% Müller-Thurgau from Baden, Germany
Sven and Florian work in the foothills of the Black Forest in Baden, Germany- more specifically, the tiny village of Münchweier, just 20 minutes East of the Rhine. Although they showed little concern for mainstream trends and acceptance, E&M have produced what are widely regarded as some of the best Pinot Noir and white wines in Germany, earning them a serious cult following.
Friends from wine school in 2003, Sven and Florian went on to work for other producers before coming back together to make their first vintage in 2007. They were, and continue to be, a small operation; starting out of a former potato cellar and using an old basket press, they remain very low-tech and produce their wines from just 7 ha (2.5 of which they own, the rest rented), farming everything organically and following biodynamic principles. Everything is done by hand and all wine is bottled unfined & unfiltered.
