Kerner

The white grape variety is a new variety between Schiava Grossa (Trollinger) x Riesling, which was last confirmed by DNA analyses carried out in 2018. Synonyms are Herold Triumpf, Kerner Bijeli, Kernerrebe, Trollinger x Riesling Renano WE S 25/30, Weinsberg S 25-30, WE S 2530 and (first name) Weißer Herold.

The cross was made in 1929 at the State Teaching and Research Centre in Weinsberg (Württemberg) by grower August Herold (1902-1973). Plant variety protection was granted in 1969. The name was given after the Swabian doctor and wine writer Justinus Kerner (1786-1862), who lived in Weinsberg. Incidentally, Rotberger and Witberger also originated from the same parents. Kerner was a crossing partner of the new varieties Juwel, Roter Milan and Silcher. One mutation is Kernling, which is characterised by fewer stingy shoots.

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.
