The VitiCE project & ClimateVine app

The VitiCE project, the only one of its kind in the UK, offers UK grape growers a unique opportunity to monitor, manage, and record growing-season weather impacts on UK grape yields.

Relatively low and variable grape yields in the UK can in-part be directly attributed to unfavourable weather and climatic conditions. However, related factors such as disease pressures, slow or poor management responses to weather conditions, or lack of knowledge regarding appropriate varietal-climate suitability in the UK, also negatively impact the sustainability of production.

We are aiming to increase the amount of high quality wine produced in the UK by monitoring and raising awareness of growing-season weather, phenology, and grape yields. The project target is to foster knowledge exchange, increase yields and grow a body of information which is useful to everyone working in the sector.
