History The graceful Slavic vine originates almost certainly in Slavonia, Croatia's region between the Sava and Drava rivers. From these regions it was imported into Italy at an age corresponding to that of the Longobards invasions, that is around the thirteenth century. The name is derived from its area of ​​origin, or, according to another theory, from the fact that from the ancient times these vineyards were grown in rows and not left as a sapling. The "Schiave" family also includes the Great Schiava, the Gray Schiava and the Black Schiava. All these vines have in common a certain rusticity (and hence adaptation to various types of environment) and high productivity and early maturation.
