The white grape variety originates from Greece. Synonyms are Asporombola, Asprorobola, Asprorompola, Robbola, Robola Aspri, Robola Aspro, Robola Kerini, Robolla, Rombola, Rombola Aspri, Rompola, Rompola Aspri, Rompola Kerine and Rompola Kerini. According to an unverifiable hypothesis, the vine was brought to the island centuries ago by the Venetians. This is another reason why it was once thought to be dentic to Ribolla Gialla, which is grown in Friuli, Italy. According to DNA analyses carried out in 2008, this is not the case, but there is a close genetic relationship to the two varieties Goustolidi and Theiako Mavro. However, the parentage is unknown. Two color mutations are the red-berry Rombola Kokkini and the black-berry Mavro Rombola.
