White Grapes

Ortega

This crossing of Müller-Thurgau and Siegerrebe has been bred in 1948 by Hans Breider in Bavaria, who named it after the philosopher José Ortega y Gasset.

These grapes ripen quite early and wines made from them have an elegant, rich and peachy bouquet and flavor and are known for being very harmonic.

Most of the vineyards planted with Ortega grapes are cultivated in Rheinhessen and the Pfalz. Additionally, this variety can also be found in Franken, the Pfalz and the Mosel region.
