The white grape variety comes 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 must not be confused with the Müller-Thurgau mutation cultivated under the name Findling in Switzerland. It was discovered in 1900 by Clotar Bouvier (1853-1930) on his estate in Herzogburg in the former Ober-Radkersburg (now Slovenia) among other vines. After several years of selection, he sold several cuttings, which initiated the spread of the vine 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, Zengö, Zenit, Zéta and Zeusz.
