Trummer Franz Xaver

The Austrian winegrower Franz Xaver Trummer (1800-1858), who comes from Styria, is one of the most important ampelographers its time. In 1841 he published the standard work "Systematic Classification and Description of the Vine Varieties Occurring in the Duchy of Styria", which is still used in specialist circles. In 1855 he published the "Addendum to the systematic classification and description of the grape varieties found in the Duchy of Styria". Trummer's classification of varieties was based on that of Lambert Joseph Leopold von Babo (1790-1862) and Johann Christian Butcher (1789-1852) developed classification method. According to his instructions, the brothers Vinzenz (1808-1888) and Conrad Kreuzer (1810-1861) painted the images of these vines over a period of 20 years. All knowledge about Austrian varieties is based on this plant. At that time, today's was still counting Slovenia to the Habsburg Empire, so that the grape varieties cultivated there at that time are also taken into account. Among other things, he determined the bird grape as the main plant of the Styrian vine Blue Wildbacher, The Hungarian grape variety Ezerjó bears the name Trummertraube in his honor as one of the synonyms. In 1845 his work "The practical viticulture of southern Germany and the duchy of Styria" was published.
