The white grape variety is a new breed between Savagnin Blanc (Traminer) x Müller-Thurgau, which was confirmed by DNA analyses carried out in 2013. It was named after the protected landscape area in South Moravia. Synonyms are Nema and Veverka. The cross was made in 1953 in the Czech Republic by the breeder Ing. Josef Veverka. The plant variety protection was granted in 1977. The two new varieties Medea and Mília were created with the same parents. The vine is moderately frost hardy, but susceptible to fungal diseases. It produces fragrant white wines that resemble Traminer. In 2010, there were larger areas under cultivation in the Czech Republic, especially in the Mikulovská wine region (198 ha) and in Slovakia (32 ha). In 2016, however, no stocks were recorded (statistics Kym Anderson)
