Abstract


VineDivers includes four viticultural regions along a west-eastern transect
through Europe: Spain (Denominación de Origen Montilla Moriles, Córdoba, Andalusia), France (AOC “Côteaux du Layon”, Loire), Austria (wine region Carnuntum and Leithaberg, Eastern Austria) and Romania (wine region “Podișul Transilvaniei” – Aiud and Târnave). The survey of landscape aesthetics and recreational value is based on in situ photographs. In Romania, the viticulture ecosystem has a low recreational value. In only one site from sixteen visited sites, there were identified hiking, walking or recreational activities. The tourism activities runs near vineyards, for wine tasting or local landmark visiting. The most difficult assessment was to establish if at least one of the landscape among the photographs corresponds to the vision of an economically sustainable viticulture. The viticultural landscape (if is well maintained) can become a method of promoting and supporting local economic activities.
