QUICK FACTS

Blaüfrankish originated in Austria, but spread to Germany (Lemberger), Hungary (Kékfrankos), and Croatia (Frankovka).

Perfect wine for all kinds of meat, especially red and darker meat, venison, sauces, stews, etc.

As Rotburger, Frankovka is also typical continental red grape variety but more subtle, elegant and good for ageing in the wood and with good potential for bottle ageing.
