Parentage of the grape: Kerner is a cross between Schiava Grossa (Trollinger) and Riesling.

History of the grape: Kerner was bred by German scientists in 1969. It is late-budding and frost-resistant, making it ideal for the cool growing climate. It has been used as an ingredient in Liebframilch, but that’s a bit of a waste, since good Kerner is well worth drinking on its own. Best of all, Kerner is named for a local 19th century writer of drinking songs.

Characteristics of the grape: Rielsing-like, with similar floral and fruit aromatics, but not as refined as Riesling.

Regions where the grape currently is important: In Germany, it is grown mostly in the Pfalz and Rheinhessen, as well as in its home, Wurttemberg, and in Franken. It is also grown in England, northern Italy, Japan, and South Africa.
