Vitovska or Vitouska, also known in Slovene as Vitovska Grganja or Garganja, is an Italian and Slovene wine grape predominantly planted in the Friuli-Venezia Giulia region and in the Kras in the Slovenian Littoral. The name vitovska is of Slovene origin, from Vitovlje,[1] and grganja is of Friulian origin, from gargànie (nere).[2] The grape is now mostly found in the lower Isonzo and Carso regions of northeast Italy. The grape produces a dry white wine.[3]

Vitovska is a cross between Prosecco Tondo and Malvasia Bianca Lunga. [4]
