Blauer Zweigelt


Rotburger (AT), Zweigeltrebe (CZ, SK) 


The creation of the Zweigelt variety in the 1920's by Professor Fritz Zweigelt, a crossing between Blaufränkisch and St. Laurent, only really gained recognition after the Second World War. 

Nowadays, it is the most widespread red grape variety in Austria, and can be found in suitable sites in all wine-producing regions. The spectrum of Zweigelt as a varietal is wide, ranging from easy drinking, unoaked wines to rich and full-bodied single vineyard wines aged in small oak barrels. As a blending partner, it pairs well with its parent varieties Blaufränkisch and St. Laurent, as well as Cabernet & Co.
