"Welschriesling
[VELSH-reez-ling; VELSH-rees-ling; velsh-REEZ-ling]
A white-wine grape that -in spite of its spelling- is not related to the true riesling of Germany, but which is a distinctly separate variety. Welschriesling's origin is a mystery, but it is well suited for the climate of central Europe, where it's extensively cultivated. It's known as Welshriesling (or Walschriesling) in Austria, Vlassky Riesling in Czechoslovakia, Olaszriesling in Hungary, Riesling Italico in Italy, and Grasevina or Laskiriesling in the former Yugoslavia. Welschriesling is a high-yielding vine that, in most cases, produces fairly bland wines. At its best, this grape delivers light wines with pronounced flowery aromas, but it's quite different from the true Riesling. Some areas, like northeast Italy, blend Welschriesling with true Riesling and label the result "Riesling," which causes some confusion. In parts of Rumania, Welschriesling is used in sparkling wines, whereas Austria occasionally turns it into a delightful trockenbeerenauslese."

Hope this helps
