Offenburg

Synonymous with the grape variety Räuschling; look there.

The white grape variety probably comes from Germany (or Switzerland ). The name may be derived from the sturdy foliage of the vine, which rustles particularly strongly in the wind. According to another variant, this is a corruption of "soot" (from soot), a term for "dark wood". Partly confusing, because synonyms incorrectly refer to other varieties are Brauner Nürnberger, Dretsch, Drutsch, Drutscht, Dünnelbling, Frankentraub, Großfränkisch, Gros Räusling, Großer Räusling, Großer Traminer, Grünspat, Klöpfer, Luttenberger, Luttenbergerstock, Melon Blanc, Offenburger, Pfäffling , Pfaffentrau, Ruchelin, Ruschling, Rüschling, Silberweiß, Vigne de Zuri, Weißer Räusling, Weißwelscher, Zürirebe, Zürichrebe and Züriwiss.
