The agrochemical characterization of the grape-growing soils, nutrient monitoring and identification of potential or existing hazardous substances represent another segment of the traceability structure for the quality manual in the grape-growing production. The thorough study of the critical points regarding vine fertilizing, the way it affects the grape-growing environment and the danger of transferring the hazardous substances into the soil-plant-food system is necessary, because it also outlines that using an appropriate fertilizing system can be a way to ensure the removal of negative effects upon wine products ((Dejeu, 2004; Pop, 2003; Iliescu, 1997). Soil, leaf and grape samples from the grape-growing farms situated in the two culture areas were gathered for the study. The farms applied chemical fertilisers on the vines leaves and roots. The concentrations of mineral elements in the soil and plant were dosed using plasma emission spectrometry.
