At first glance, Müller-Thurgau and Gutedel have little in common. Gutedel Müller-Thurgau, which is called Chasselas in Switzerland and increasingly also in this country, is the oldest cultivated grape variety of all and already had the reputation of being a particularly noble variety in Germany, when Riesling was still considered an unpleasant sour grape. Müller-Thurgau, on the other hand, was only crossed from Riesling and Madeleine royale at the beginning of the 20th century by the Swiss grape breeder Hermann Müller in Geisenheim and then further developed at the Wädenswil Research Institute, where it received its name in 1913. It has always been considered an easy-to-cultivate variety for everyday wines without special demands.
