Designation for a typical Austrian or Burgenland wine type of rustic style. The Uhudler was born at the beginning of the 20th century and was, so to speak, caused by the phylloxera catastrophe. After the appearance of the pest in the second half of the 19th century, phylloxera-resistant American grape varieties were introduced, which were then also (as one of the many unsuccessful attempts) crossed with European vines to transfer this resistance. It was only later that the real solution was discovered, namely grafting (grafting) European scions onto American rootstocks. However, American vines were also cultivated in their original ungrafted state and wines were made from them. Such ungrafted vines are called direct carriers, regardless of their origin.
