The white grape variety (also called Beutelrebe) possibly originates from the Caucasus. It was allegedly introduced to Germany from Caucasus in 1945 by the owner of the Görz winery in Bad Kreuznach (Rhineland-Palatinate). It spread to the Nahe region under the name Beutelrebe. The variety was then selected by the breeder Georg Dalkowsky and approved under its present name in 1982. For a long time, the parentage was disputed; Riesling x Grüner Veltliner or mutation of Riesling were assumed, among others. According to DNA analyses carried out in 2012, however, it is a cross between Madeleine Angevine x Riesling. The late-ripening vine is resistant to winter frost. It produces an acidic, riesling-like wine. The variety is grown in Germany in the Nahe and Rheinhessen growing regions. cultivated. However, no stock was recorded in 2016 (Kym Anderson).
