The white grape variety originates from Germany or Switzerland. Synonyms are Bitterer, Förderer, Förderling, Förterer, Füllering, Fünderling, Fürder, Fürderling, Fütterling, Fürterer, Fürterling, Fürther, Heubacher, Kleiner Räuschling, Miesenvaiter, Missethäter, Visitator, Vitterer, Weißer Fütterer, Wiesentaiter, Wiesenthaider, Wiesentheer, Wiesetheider, Wiesetriter and Wisenhader. According to DNA analyses carried out in 2013, it is a presumably natural cross between Weißer Heunisch (Gouais Blanc) x Savagnin (Traminer). However, this is based on only 20 DNA markers (see Molecular Genetics). The Fütterer is one of the oldest varieties in Central Europe. In 1650 it was mentioned in the posthumously published work "Historia Plantarum Universalis" by the Swiss botanist Johannes Bauhin (1541-1613).

There is a vast number of sources on the web where one can acquire knowledge about wine. But none has the scope, timeliness and accuracy of the information in the encyclopaedia at wein.plus. I use it regularly and rely on it.
