The winery "Ludwig Thanisch und Sohn" is located in the municipality of Lieser (Bernkastel area) in the German wine-growing region Mosel
. Viticulture has been practiced by the traditional family since 1648, the end of the Thirty Years' War. At that time there was a village called Thanisch. After a plague epidemic around the year 1640, only one villager remained alive, who moved to Graach and named himself after the former community. The current owner, Jörg Thanisch, took over the estate from his parents in 2001. The vineyards cover 5.5 hectares of vineyards in the sites Weisenstein in Bernkastel-Kues, Juffer
, and Niederberg-Helden
in Lieser. 70% of the vineyards are steep slopes, which have recently been completely converted to wire-frame cultivation. Riesling is cultivated to 75%, as well as some Pinot Blanc and Pinot Noir. The wines are fermented at controlled temperatures in stainless steel tanks. Since 2002, only natural yeasts have been used for Prädikat wines. There is only one filtration until bottling. Bottle-fermented Riesling sparkling wines are also produced.
