In 1976, around 200,000 seeds were sown rape Catalyst residue. In a two-year selection, 200 vines were selected and two of them were selected that had a strong muscat tone. The first trial plantings took place in 1983, the first wine was made from it in 1991. Initially, the Muscat-Lemberger variety was named, but a new name was sought to avoid any litigation. The Amalienhof winery changed the application variety protection under the new name "Blue Amavitis".
