The white grape variety comes from Italy, The name is derived from the golden yellow berries (d'oro). Synonyms are Doro di Venezia, Dorona, Dorona Veneziana, Fedit 51, Fedit 51-C, Fedit 51 CSG, Incrocio Bianco Fedit 51 (second main name), Incrocio Bianco Fedit 51 CSG, Incrocio Fedit 51 and Uva d'Oro. Some synonyms (Fedit 51 etc.) and a confusing entry on the breeding list indicate that it was done in 1951 new breed (an unknown breeder has incorrectly declared the existing variety as his breeding success). According to in 2013 DNA analysis however, it comes from a probably natural one crossing between Bermestia Bianca x Garganega, According to a hypothesis, it was known as early as the 15th century, but this probably refers to the frequent confusion with the Garganega variety to which this applies.
The medium to late ripening vine is resistant to Botrytis and drought, It is well suited for the production of Passito (Sweet wine) and is also called table grape used. The variety is grown in the region Veneto grown in the provinces of Vicenza and Padua. In 2010, five hectares of vineyards with a declining trend were identified under the name Incrocio Bianco Fedit 51 (Statistics Kym Anderson ).
