Zweigelt is the most widespread red wine in Austria, newly bred by Dr. Zweigelt 1922, who was a teacher at the Viticulture and Horticulture Center Klosterneuburg. It is a cross-bred between St. Laurent and Blaufränkisch. Zweigelt is a very fertile grape, which requires intensive leaf work and yield regulation but demands little from soil. Variety spectrum ranges from young-drinking wine to mature versions of barrique and rich cuvees.
