The wine-growing region is located in the state of Rhineland-Palatinate in Germany and is named after the river of the same name. There is much preserved evidence of the Romans, who already cultivated wine here. The vineyards cover 4,237 hectares of vines along the river from Hunsrück to the mouth of the Rhine at Bingen.

The Bukettrebe was identified as late as in 2012, when DNA analyses showed that the Silvaner variety, which was indicated as the father variety, was wrong. Even experts can be wrong, as Scheu had claimed in 1935 during a lecture that the Bukettrebe had not proved to be a crossing partner. Even...
