Synonym

Term for words or terms which have the same or similar meaning but are phonetically different. For example "Weinhauer, Weinbauer und Winzer" or "Besenwirtschaft, Buschenschank, Heckenwirtschaft, Heuriger und Straußwirtschaft" or "Böttcher und Küfer" or "Keltern und Pressen" or "Vinification, vinification, wine making and vinification - but also pressing". However, words with exactly the same meaning are rare, often there is a difference in meaning or value. For example "head and head" or "home and dwelling" or "vine and grape". Especially with very old, widespread grape varieties, there are in extreme cases 30, 40, 50 and more local and regional synonyms for a single variety and its varieties. These are often groups of grape varieties, under which varieties (almost identical clones or mutants), but also similar, closely related but genotypically independent varieties are grouped together. Significant examples are Lambrusco, Malvasia, Muscat, Pinot, Refosco, Trebbiano and Vernaccia (each with a list).
