Scheu Georg

The German vine grower and viticulture expert Justus Georg Scheu (1879-1949) received his horticultural training in Hanover and worked as a horticultural technician in Munich and Schierstein. He then completed training at the Teaching and Research Institute in Geisenheim and at the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute in Bromberg. From 1909 onwards, he worked as a district advisor for viticulture and fruit growing at the State Institute for Vine Breeding in Alzey in the Rheinhessen wine growing region. Here he was intensively engaged in the selection, crossing and breeding of grape varieties, also experimenting with many wild vines. The very successful Scheurebe is his most famous creation and was also named after him. Other new varieties are AZ 15477, Faberrebe, Huxelrebe, Kanzler, Regner, Septimer, Siegerrebe, Thurling and Würzer.
