The white grape variety (also Hochdörfer 13 A 80) is one mutation of the variety Kerner, which in 1974 in a Kerner plant in Nussdorf near Landau ( palatinate ) was found by Ludwig Hochdörfer. The name is formed from the first syllable of the mother places and "ling" because the wine Riesling comes very close. It differs from the Kerner in that it is less susceptible to the formation of suckers, The variety protection was granted in 1995. In 2010, 17 hectares of vineyards were recorded in Germany with a downward trend (Kym Anderson ).
