Graševina is also called Italian Riesling, Laški Rizling, Grašica, Welsch Riesling, Riesling Italico, Olaszrizlig, Rizling Vlasšky.
Its origins are still a matter of discussion, some scientists claim it originates from France, but they still have not determined whether it originates from Champagne or Alsace, whereas others claim it originates from the Austrian part of Styria. Although the name Italian Riesling is used frequently, it is certain that this grape does not originate from Italy, and this name is explained as an incorrect translation of the term Welsch Riesling from the German.
This is a very resistant species of grapes that does not require very fertile soil, and thrives in hilly areas and in a warm climate. It can be found on all the wine-growing hills of continental Croatia, which offers the optimum climate for its cultivation. In good years, it yields very high quality wines, and is good for producing predicate wines, and archiving.
It ripens late, the wine is golden-green in colour, it has a distinct bouquet and a dry taste. Its taste most often recalls a fresh and juicy apple, and even the young wine develops a fresh bouquet and aroma typical for this sort.

It is served in a Riesling glass, at 10- 12o C. Since this is mostly a rather fresh, dry wine, it goes best with cold meat trays, clear meat soups, warm antipasti with pasta and mild sauces, turkey with mlinci, fish dishes, pork roast, veal and lamb.
