The crossing was made in 1955 by August Herold (1902-1973) at the Weinsberg Teaching and Research Institute in Württemberg (Germany). The plant variety protection was granted in 1979. The name goes back to Immanuel A. L. Dornfeld (1796-1869), after whose initiative the viticulture school in Weinsberg was founded. The variety Hegel was created with the same parents.
