Pálava

The white grape variety is a new breed between Roter Traminer x Müller-Thurgau. It was named after the protected landscape area in South Moravia. Synonyms are Nema and Veverka. The crossing was made in 1953 in the Czech Republic by the breeder Ing. Josef Veverka. The plant variety protection was granted in 1977. Incidentally, the 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. The variety is cultivated in the Czech Republic, especially in the Mikulovská wine region, where it occupies 198 hectares. In Slovakia it is cultivated on 32 hectares. In 2010, a total of 230 hectares of vineyards were designated (Kym Anderson).
