The colloquial term "foundlings" is used to describe wild-growing and initially unknown grape varieties whose parentage is unclear - they are open-pollinated. However, the name is also used to describe three different white grape varieties:

Findling = Bouvier

A variety called "Findling" is listed in the variety register of Germany. However, according to DNA analyses, it is not an independent variety, but the Bouvier cultivated in Austria (personal information from Dr. Erika Maul of the Julius Kühn Institute). It occupied a total of 23 hectares of vineyards in 2019, mainly in the Baden and Mosel growing regions.
