Along with Bingen and Nierstein, one of the three areas in the German Rheinhessen growing region; see there

The wine-growing region is located in Rhineland-Palatinate in Germany and is named after the region. The name is derived from the historical affiliation as the province of Rheinhessen of the Grand Duchy of Hesse from 1816 to 1919.

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...
