The phenological stages and the content of the anthocyanins of non-irrigated cultivars Blatina, Vranec, Kratoshija, Prokupec and Stanushina were study. The cultivars are located in the Skopje vineyard area. The all examinated cultivars belong to the ecogeographical group of convarietas Pontica, subconvariates balcanica Negr.
The influence of climate was assessed with temperatures sum, sunshine hours and rainfall from the period 2001 to 2004.
The effect of climate and cultivar were found to be highly significant with regard to the vine behavior (phenological stages) and quality of the wine (content of anthocyanins).
