Abstract

Geography is a complex discipline dealing with multiple topics since its diverse focus employs deciphering human and natural environments. However, geographers’ role in viticulture for decades still needs to be fixed for other experts in related disciplines. Scarce literature can be found trying to resolve this geographical subdiscipline and remark on the relevant topics that geographers of viticulture can face considering, among others, the regional geographical analysis integrating physical and human interfaces. Therefore, in this commentary, we tried to update the background of this geographical subdiscipline by establishing the main topics, recommended types of research for geographers that work on these topics and setting some challenges and tools to be solved and used, respectively, in the coming future, but also remarking the key role that the geographical approach plays in viticulture, for decades ago to the coming future.
