Vandals chopped up a 500-year old grapevine in Austria that is beleived to have been a direct ancestor of the popular gruner veltliner wine. Vinters in the southern village of St. George discovered the vine was chopped into pieces and village leaders say it was severely damaged with survival chances unclear. Scientists who have examined the "St. Georgen" vine surmise it was crossed centuries ago with a variety of taminer grapes to produce the first of the acidic and tangy gruner veltliner, which is known in the U.S. as gru-vee.
