The red grape variety (also Storgoziya) is an interspecific new variety between Buket x Seyve-Villard 12-375(Villard Blanc). The hybrid was crossed in Bulgaria in 1976 by the breeder I. Ivanov. The name was given after the ancient Roman name for the town of Pleven. The high-yielding vine is resistant to both mildew and botrytis, as well as to winter frosts. It produces acidic, alcohol-rich red wines with ageing potential. The area under cultivation in Bulgaria in 2010 was 295 hectares, mainly in the province of Pleven. It is also used as a table grape
