There are at least four different grape varieties with this name:
The white grape variety is a new breeding between Cardinal x Afus Ali (which was confirmed by DNA analyses published in 2010). Synonyms are Victoria Blanc, Victoria and Vittoria. The cross was made in 1964 in Romania by V. Lepadatu and G. Condei. The variety is used as a grape variety and table grape. It is cultivated in Croatia, Moldova (565 ha) and Serbia (55 ha). In 2016, a total of 620 hectares of vineyards were designated (Kym Anderson).
The white grape variety (also Hibridul 2-13-8) is an open-pollinated seedling of the Regina Viilor (Queen of V ineyards) variety. It was selected in 1952 by the two breeders Gherasim Constantinescu and Elena Negreanu. The variety is used as table grape. No stocks were reported in 2016 (Kym Anderson).
