The white grape variety originates from Slovenia or Croatia. Synonyms are Belina Pleterje, Plavis, Praskava Belina, Ranfol Beli, Ranfol Bijela, Sremska Bijolina, Stajerska Belina (Styrian White), Urbanka and Vrbanka. According to DNA analyses carried out in 2020, it comes from a presumably natural cross between Vulpea x Gouais Blanc. The high-yielding vine produces light-coloured white wines. In Slovenia, it is cultivated under the name Belina Pleterje, mainly in the Podravje and Posavje areas, and is permitted in the PTP wine Cviček. In Croatia, it is mainly cultivated in the north. In 2016, no stocks were reported; in 2010, there were 134 hectares (Kym Anderson statistics).
