The red grape variety (also Pescatore) comes from Austria or Austria-Hungary (at the time of the Habsburg monarchy). The part of the name "Hongrie" could indicate Hungarian descent. In the vineyards of the Australian winery Torbreck in Barossa Valley some very old vines are cultivated. According to the company, they belong to the group of around 70 varieties that were created in 1833 by the Australian wine pioneer James Busby (1802-1871) had been taken from his trip to Europe. Some varieties became French in 2017 for identification INRA in Montpellier to hand over. One of them is said to be the almost extinct Wildbacher de Hongrie. Whether there is a connection to the varieties grown in Styria (Austria) Blue Wildbacher is not known.
