The white grape variety with reddish berry colour originates from Hungary (Kövi = from/on stone). There are over 60 synonyms, indicating great age. Some grouped alphabetically by country are Mala Dinka (Bulgaria); Großsteinschiller, Kövidinka Rose, Rosentraube, Roter Steinschiller, Steinschiller (Germany); Ružica Crvena (Croatia); Fleischtraube (Austria); Dinka Alba (Romania); Kevidinka, Ružica (Serbia); Kamená Dinka (Slovakia); Dinka Fehér, Kövidinka Piros, Kövidinka Rosovaia, Rusica, Ruzsica, Vörösdinka (Hungary). The ancestry (parentage) is unknown. Despite seemingly suggestive synonyms or morphological similarities, it must not be confused with the varieties Arany Sárfehér, Glavinuša (Kövidinka), Kövidinka Fehér (with white berries, possibly related), Pozsonyi or Savagnin Rose (Mala Dinka). It was a crossing partner of the new varieties Bakarka, Jubileum 75, Karát and Sila, as well as a parent of Grünfränkisch (natural crossing).
