The trend for organic grapevine cultivation has increased recently due to a higher demand for organic products in general, but also due to the fact that new legislation for organic wine has been passed in 2012. In order to produce quality and cost-effective wines the quality of the grapes is of utmost importance. The studies were performed during 2012 and 2013 on grapes for red wines of 'Feteasca neagra' and 'Cabernet Sauvignon' cultivars. The parameters followed were those specific for grape maturation (weight of 100 berries, sugar content, total acidity, anthocyanins accumulation and total polyphenolic index) along with the yield and sanitary quality of the grapes. These two years of organic cultivation proved to have been optimal for this type of technology, the grapes harvested being of the required quality for the production of wine with controlled denomination of origin.
