Thurn & Taxis: Adding ‘Spark’ to Sparkling Wine

Frame Left
The story of Thurn and Taxis goes back to at least the 12th century, although their roots may even be older.

The original family has its roots in northern Italy, near Bergamo. Their estates ranged from Italy to Austria and parts of Germany to what is now the Czech Republic.

If you search Thurn and Taxis, you may come across games and historical references to the family’s dominance in the postal business (of all things) in the Middle Ages. From this core business, they developed other businesses to satisfy the needs and wants of all classes of citizens in Europe.

Today, the family that represents the Thurn and Taxis label is lead by Prince Max Emanuel. They are one of the wealthiest families in Germany. They have been producing beer under the Thurn and Taxis name for some time and have recently introduced the Sparkling Bianco and Sparkling Bitter as their newest products.
