Kernling is a white grape variety, which originated from mutation from the grape variety Kerner . In 1974, Ludwig Hochdörffer found this mutation in a Kerner vineyard in the municipality of Nußdorf near Landau in the Palatinate . The variety received the varietal protection in 1991 and was registered in 1995 in the cultivator list of the Bundessortenamt .

The name is made up of the syllable core (reference to the mother plant Kerner) and ling (as a reference to the Riesling , since the wine type is similar). Kernling has a similar wine quality as the Kerner, but is significantly less susceptible to illness and has a lesser tendency towards the formation of miseries . In 2007, the Rebstatistik had a planted area of ​​18 hectares in Germany, after 19 hectares in 2001.
