As a hybrid of the two varieties Riesling and Trollinger, Kerner has a steady presence in the Palatinate. Cultivated for the first time in 1929, it was named after the poet Justinus Kerner, who had a great passion for wine. Even though its peak in popularity was more than 20 years ago, there are still 1,200 hectares of vineyards cultivated in the Palatinate.
Kerner is offered in all quality classes. It convinces with high acidity, typical for Riesling wine, and a mix of a fresh and full-bodied taste. Its flavors remind of apricots and black currants.
