The late ripening vine is resistant to Botrytis but prone to both mildews and sensitive to frost, It produces fresh, neutral white wines. The variety is grown in Serbia in the Fruška Gora (Vojvodina) area. There are also other stocks in Croatia (4 ha), Montenegro and Northern Macedonia, In 2010, however, only in Croatia was a stock identified (Kym Anderson ). Župljanka is also a synonym for Chasselas to which there is no relationship.
