The white grape variety (breeding no. Würzburg B 48-10-2) is a new breeding between Siegerrebe x Müller-Thurgau, which was confirmed by DNA analyses published in 2012. The crossbreeding was carried out in 1948 by the breeder Dr. Hans Breider (1908-2000) at the Bavarian State Institute for Viticulture, Fruit and Horticulture in Würzburg (Germany). By the way, the three new breeds Ortega, Tamara and Thekla were created with the same parents. However, the variety did not catch on; in 2016 no stocks were recorded (statistics Kym Anderson).
