Designation for a typical Austrian or Burgenland wine type of rustic style. 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 crossed (as one of the numerous unsuccessful attempts) with European vines in order to transfer this resistance. It was not until later that the actual solution was recognized, namely to graft the European scions onto American rootstocks. However, American v ines were also cultivated in their original ungrafted state and wines were pressed from them. Such unimproved vines are called direct carriers, independent of their origin.
