Designation for a typical Austrian or Burgenland wine type of rustic style. Uhudler was born at the beginning of the 20th century and was caused, so to speak, 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 crossed with European vines (as one of numerous unsuccessful attempts) in order to transfer this resistance. It was only later that the actual solution was recognised, namely to graft 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 producers, regardless of their origin.
