The present work deal with the development of a mathematical model able to predict, using time dependent meteorological data, soil and vine characteristics, the growing of a vine and grapevine in terms of leaf area, shoot length, fruit and vegetative mass and finally sugar and acid content of the berry. The model is based upon a source-sink relationship approach, integrated with a soil-atmosphere model, where water accumulation in soil, sap flow across vine are coupled with potential carbon demand functions to directly consider possible water and temperature stresses. The model includes also a N2 sink-source approach, limiting growth rate following N2 availability. Finally, a mechanistic model to evaluate sugar accumulation and a correlation-based model for acid concentration evaluation in the berry is coupled with vegetative growth, to provide the information required to manage vineyard operations and evaluate the impact to the potential wine quality. The primary distinctive trait of this model is then the integration and feedback among prediction of grapevine quality model (sugar an acid content) and vegetative growth model, using a common initial ad boundary conditions data set.
