The white grape variety (also Geilweilerhof SBL. 2-19-58) is an interspecific new cross between Oberlin 716 (Gamay x Riparia Millardet) x Riesling 91. It contains genes from Vitis riparia and Vitis vinifera. The hybrid was crossed in the 1930s by Dr. Bernhard Husfeld (1900-1970) at the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute in Müncheberg Mark Brandenburg. The selection took place in 1940 and the name was given in reference to National Socialist ideas. In view of the bad experiences with French hybrids in the decades before, the variety with the Siegfriedrebe, which was created around the same time, was an almost phenomenal success from a breeding-scientific point of view.
