Kövérszőlő is a variety of grape indigenous to the Transylvania wine region, but is also grown in Tokaj-Hegyalja wine region of Hungary. The variety almost entirely disappeared from Tokaj after the phylloxera epidemic of the 19th century. Kövérszõlõ (Hungarian: fat grape) is characterized by its relatively large big berries. It is suitable for making aszú wines because of its susceptibility to botrytisation and its high sugar content.

Kövérszőlő is a crossing of Kadarka with Munkatsy Jozsef (which in turn is Diamanttraube × Muscat of Alexandria). It was crossed with Fetească Albă to produce Fetească Regală.

It is also known as Resertraube.
