Abstract:

The aim of the work was the application of the analytical hierarchical process (AHP) for assessing and ranking seven grapevine varieties (V. vinifera L.) of wine grown in Odobe┼čti vineyard (Galben─â de Odobe┼čti, Feteasc─â alb─â, Feteasc─â regal─â, Aligot├ę, Sauvignon, Riesling italian, and Alicante Bouschet), taking into consideration the tradition of the zone. AHP is one of the most used multicriteria decision making tool. It can provide an average position of a decision of variants and criteria visualization for entering in a hierarchy. In the AHP exercise, 16 criteria having a high degree of generality, with a scale of 7 levels each have been used. Among these criteria were included: the request on the market, knowledge for recognition, and biotic and abiotic threats that can influence the crop. The analyses were obtained using the Expert Choice Desktop software (v. 11.5.1683). According to the results, the grapevine varieties selected with the highest potential for Odobe┼čti vineyard were Galben─â de Odobe┼čti, Aligot├ę and Feteasc─â alb─â. These three varieties are zoned for the Odobe┼čti vineyard and capitalize very well the pedoclimatic characteristics of this grapevine growing area. Knowing that Odobe┼čti is one the oldest vineyards in the country and currently it is profiled on white wines production, especially, the study can contribute to the establisment of a durable viticulture, production of quality wines and a more reliable future of this viticultural area.
