An artificial cross of Sylvaner and Pinot Gris, Freisamer was created in 1916 at Freiburg (D), giving it the nickname of Freiburger used in Switzerland and elsewhere, while Freisamer is a contraction of Freiburg and Dreisam, the river that runs through the town. A relatively late-ripening variety that produces distinctly acidic wines, it is sporadically grown in Switzerland, including in the canton of Fribourg, which is certainly no accident.
