D. Milisavljević and his associates. Due to the upright growing shoots, it is suitable for machine cultivation of vineyards. So far, it is mostly grown in the Fruška Gora vineyards, but its planting is also recommended in other vineyard areas. At the same time, care should be taken about its sensitivity to downy mildew and the possibility of freezing in winter (therefore, appropriate protection should be implemented and planting in cold lower positions should be avoided). By processing its grapes, wines of exceptional quality are obtained, which is confirmed by the example that in 1979 she was declared the champion at the evaluation in Ljubljana.
