The current status of Ukrainian grape growing is of no help to the enhancement of the country’s wine making. On the contrary, the situation is aggrsavated by the following factors: deficiency of source fruit which is compensated by importations of wine materials and wines in bulk; a relatively high price of domestic source fruit in comparison to that of the imported raw product; the variety composition of vineyards is inconsistent with the needs of the country’s wine industry. The competitiveness of the wine industry is directly related to the variety composition of vineyards and the quality and price of grapes to be made into wine. Wine varieties of grapevine enter as the basis of wine making.
