The wine-growing region is located in the federal state of Rhineland-Palatinate in Germany. The vineyards cover 23,554 hectares of vineyards, making it the second largest German wine-growing region after Rheinhessen. Until 1995 it was called Rheinpfalz, the current name (lat.

The cross was made in 1921 at the Bavarian State Institute for Viticulture and Horticulture in Würzburg by Dr. August Ziegler (1885-1937). It was rediscovered in 1950 by Dr. Hans Breider (1908-2000), who vehemently advocated its distribution. She was a crossing partner in the three new...
