            A high heterogeneity characterizes vineyards due to several factors such as pedo-morphological characteristics, seasonal weather conditions and cropping practices. This spatial variability in the vineyards leads to a variation in grape quality and yields ultimately leading to an overall reduction of wine quality and volume. In order to produce higher-quality products, vineyard management decisions ought to account for spatial variability.
