It must not be with the variety Chasselas (with synonyms Bela Žlahtnina, Rdeča Žlahtnina). The late-ripening vine is generally sensitive to diseases. It produces fresh, floral-tasting white wines. The variety is approved in the regions of Primorska Hrvatska (Croatian coastal region) and in Istria. It is mainly grown on the island of Krk off the coast around the town of Vrbnik. Together with others autochthonous, Croatian varieties, it is part of a revitalization project. In 2010 135 hectares of vineyards were shown (Statistics Kym Anderson ).
