Squint

Old Saxon name for a wine made from red and white grape varieties. It is a matter of analogy mixed sentence, but this name is reserved for Austria. The winery Judge Vincenz in Meissen (Saxony), this name had been protected as a brand name. In the meantime, however, they can (only) in the growing area Saxony be used freely. The Saxon pronunciation for "pupils" is assumed as origin, since these only this cheap wine as Zechwein in contrast to the predicate wines of wealthy (the "gentlemen") could afford. A second interpretation refers to the fact that the wine "shimmers" in the glass. The wine corresponds to the common processing of white and red grapes or their mash the Rotling (Germany), the Schiller (Switzerland) and the Schillerwein (Württemberg). There is no wine law Rose because only red wines are allowed under this EU legislation.
