Grapevine growing technologies require continuous adjustments to both climate instabilities and, in particular, current viticulture issues such as a sharp increase in prices for the vast majority of inputs and an increasing difficulty in finding labour at reasonable prices. The research focuses on a varietal assortment of five cultivars, as well as the main technological sequences of grapevine growing that require a significant amount of manual labour or inputs, such as soil management and summer pruning and activities. The influence of the experimental variants both on grape production and especially on the economic indicators was monitored. For each technological sequence, several experimental variants with different complexity were tried, adaptable to each vineyard with various technological and financial possibilities. In these circumstances, Romanian vineyards must align their organization, management, and growing technologies in order to compete with products from other countries for quality and price. To achieve this goal, in addition to ongoing organization and documentation, it is necessary to select technological options that allow for high-tech mechanization which is critical for lowering costs while still maintaining grape quality and lowering carbon emissions.
