The white grape variety is a new breed between the red varieties Prokupac x Pinot Noir. Synonyms are Garganja, Jouplanka, Žhupljanka, Zouplanca and Žsuplyanka. The crossing was made in Serbia by Dragoslav Milisavljevic. Plant variety protection was granted in 1970. Župljanka is also a synonym for Chasselas, but there is no relation to it. The late ripening vine is resistant to botrytis, but susceptible to both types of mildew and sensitive to frost. It produces fresh, neutral white wines. The variety is cultivated on 250 hectares in Northern Macedonia and 255 hectares in the Fruška Gora area (Vojvodina) in Serbia. In 2016, a total of 505 hectares of vineyards were designated (Kym Anderson).
