Climate projections considered here are for two periods in the future throughout two IPCC scenarios: 2001 – 2030 (A1B) and 2071 – 2100 (A2) obtained using Coupled Regional Climate Model EBU-POM. Results are used in calculation of Heliothermal, Drought and Cool Night Index for climate classification of vineyard regions in Serbia. Presented results show significant change of climate in the future, indicating that varieties of grapevine must be adaptable or vineyard regions should be shifted in other areas with appropriate climate.
