The grape varieties studied in this paper (Fetească regală, Sauvignon blanc, italian Riesling, Muscat Ottonel, Traminer roz) are the main white wine grape varieties grown in the wine center Blaj, as well as in all the Tarnave vineyards. The objective of the studies and research we performed was to show the ampelographic, agrobiological and technological attributes of the main grape varieties grown at SCDVV Blaj and used for obtaining quality white wines. The grape varieties that were studied are main varieties from the Tarnave vineyard. They were presented in this paper, according to the unique scheme and methodology for the ampelographic description of varieties, created by the International Organisation of Vine and Wine (O.I.V) , in collaboration with the International Union for the Protection of New Varieties of Plants (U.P.O.V) and the International Board for Plant Genetic Resources (I.B.G.R.).
