Welschriesling is from German, which literally means "foreign Riesling". This is not the same grape as Rhine Riesling. Welschriesling, or more commonly known as Italian Riesling in most of central Europe, is a distinct and ancient wine variety most likely from Croatia. In fact, Italian Riesling is the most widely planted grape variety in Hungary.

Italian Riesling produces a light, acidic wine that can have leak, pear, green apple, citrus and straw aromas. The wine is very light, and the subtle tastes and aromas can be destroyed if the wine is stored or aged in an improper container, which is done all too often.

Italian Riesling (Welschriesling) can create a delightful and distinctive wine, but has given an unfair reputation because it is all too commonly incorrectly handled by the wine maker.
