Created in 1948, Ortega is a cross between two German grapes: Müller-Thürgau and Siegerrebe. Used as a table grape as well as in wine, Ortega is easy to grow and can be planted in cold climates. Ortega is best in sweet wines, which usually have a light, peachy flavor. Ortega is most often found in Germany, though plantings are declining. Ortega also makes good wines in England.
