  • About

Würzer is a Gewürztraminer×Müller-Thurgau cross made at the German viticultural station of Alzey in 1932 and only planted in any significant quantity in the 1980s, peaking in 1995 at 121 ha/300 acres, mainly in Rheinhessen. Planted on only 61 ha/150 acres in 2012, it is overpoweringly heady, yields well, but a little goes a very long way indeed.
