Microregioning (zoning) in viticulture is used to identify the natural habitat of each variety, one that complies with all its biological requirements to cultivation, optimal growth, development, productivity and high grape quality. The study took place on the land of Kramolin village. A database of soil parameters was created and the climatic characteristics, necessary for GIS, were processed statistically for the establishment of viticulture microregions in the area of Suhindol. Triangulated Irregular Networks (TIN) were developed for the terrain surface of the relief and distribution of the total vegetation temperature.

Key words: Geographical Information System, regioning, microregioning, soil, climate, vine varieties, vine rootstocks
