- This eponomously named Austrian specialty was created in 1922 by Dr. Fritz Zweigelt who crossed Blaufrankisch, also known as Lemberger, with St. Laurent, which is kind of related to Pinot Noir. It is also known sometimes as Rotburger and not to be confused with Rotberger, which is like Riesling. Everybody got that? The Familie Bauer’s delicious 2010 offering is also organic.
