Orange grape

The white grape variety most likely originates from Germany. Synonyms are Gelbe Orangetraube, Orangentraube (Germany); Narancsszölö(Hungary). The variety was found and selected by the German ampelographer Johann Philipp Bronner (1792-1864) in 1840 near Speyer in Rhineland-Palatinate in the forests along the Rhine. He named it Zaehringia nobilis according to his own classification system, after the old Swabian ruling dynasty of the Zähringers, and gave it the common name orange grape after its intense aroma. The variety was long considered a wild vine. It has morphological similarities with the Romanian variety Galbenă de Odobești (with synonym Narancsszölö).
