The present study is focused on the determination of mineral composition of international red wines (Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon), white wines (Sauvignon blanc, Aligoté, Muscat Ottonel, Italian Riesling) and native red wines (Feteasca neagră, Burgund mare, Băbeasca neagră), white wines (Feteasca regală, Fetească albă, Băbeasca gri, Șarba) produced in the Dealu Bujorului vineyard between 2014-2018, using Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass-Spectrometry (ICP-MS), and comparison of mineral composition of the soil. The high level of Ca, K, Na, Mg, P and Fe was observed in analyzed wine samples, the concentration of Na, Cu, As, Cd, Zn and Pb metals in analyzed wine samples were under Maximal Permissible Limit. The average concentrations of elements in the soil decrease in the following order: K, Na, Ca, Cu, Fe, P, Mg, Li, Co, Mn, Zn, Pb, Cr, As, U, Cd and Hg. Cu concentration in the topsoil of the Dealu Bujorului vineyard exceeds the maximum allowed limit (20 mg/kg Cu).
