The evolution of temperature indicators, more pronounced in the north of Romania, clearly shows a gradual warming trend, mainly during the growing season, especially during the ripening of the grapes. There have been highlighted relatively large differences between the values of the main bioclimatic indicators of the country's wine regions, as well as a stronger growth trend of these ones in the northern areas and at the Black Sea. The viticultural region of Dobrogea hills profits by maritime influences that limit summer temperature extremes and winter frost. There is evidence that in many regions, day temperature increased more than night temperature. Results show that Romanian viticulture will benefit from climate change. Given these trends and knowing their possible negative effects on vine physiology, production and quality, the future viticultural zoning requires reconsideration, and the application of technological measures to minimize the negative effects of climate change.
