The white grape variety originates from Slovenia. Synonyms are Findling, Hartig 384, Juliperle, Kimmig Kp 1 (Germany); Bouvier Blanc, Bouvier Précoce (France); Bouvierov Hrozen, Bouvirovo Hrozno (Slovakia); Weiße Bouviertraube, Bouviertraube (Austria); Bela Ranina, Bela Ranka, Radgonska Ranina, Ranina and Ranina Bela (Slovenia). The variety should not be confused with the mutation of Müller-Thurgau grown under the name Findling in Switzerland. It was discovered by the vineyard owner Clotar Bouvier (1853-1930) in 1900 on his property in Herzogburg in the former Upper Radkersburg (today Slovenia) among other vines. After several years of selection, he sold several cuttings, which initiated the spread in what was then Austria-Hungary. According to DNA analyses carried out in 2013, it is a presumably natural cross between Pinot x Muscat Blanc. The variety was a crossing partner of the new varieties Bianca, Decora, Edelsteiner, Ganita, Julie, Kabar, Romeo, Veritas, Zengő, Zenit, Zéta and Zeusz.
