Cinnamon grape

The different coloured grape variety group originates from Austria. Synonyms for mostly the variety Blaue Zimmettraube are Blaue Oberfelder, Blauer Hainer, Blaue Zimmttraube, Cernina, Drobna Crnina, Drobna Sipa, Kleinkölner, Kleinmilcher, Kossovina, Krähentraube, Mala Modrina, Modrina, Plesnova, Prava Crnina, Schwarze Zimmettraube, Vranek, Vranik and Zimmerttraube. The synonym Cernina indicates the same identity with the Cellerina (Cenerina) from the Italian Piedmont, which is no longer cultivated today and to which it looks strikingly similar. The varieties used to be cultivated in Austria-Hungary in Lower Styria (northern Slovenia), which was part of the monarchy at the time, as well as in Croatia and were used as wine grapes and table grapes.

The glossary is a monumental achievement and one of the most important contributions to wine knowledge. Of all the encyclopaedias I use on the subject of wine, it is by far the most important. That was the case ten years ago and it hasn't changed since.
