Equipment for mounting vine poles
Throughout history, agriculture, including the viticulture sector, has been, for our country, one of the basic branches of the economy – not for nothing were we nicknamed “the granary of Europe”. In the post-December period however, a major decline in this significant economic field began. What is important to note, is that in the recent years, a relaunch of the development of several important areas of agriculture has begun, especially in the field of viticulture, greenhouses and, last but not least, the replanting of orchards.
WALDEVAR together with its partners, manufacturers of industrial equipment, have been involved in the design and development of several models of such equipment, which will be useful in these important areas of agriculture.
WALDEVAR comes to the aid of companies specialized in the viticulture sector that want to expand their operations. Our earthmoving equipment helps growers who want to arrange and maintain vineyards.
WALDEVAR machines allow the installation of poles and concrete pillars for vines.
The compact and robust design of the WALDEVAR HWL 400R allows it to be accessed and operated on terrain with varying degrees of difficulty and inclination. The machine’s crawler is made of high quality metal, but there is also the possibility of coating them with rubber elements to protect the surface on which they run.

The viticulture industry in Romania
Romanian wine production has accounted for an average of 4 million hectoliters in the last 5 years, which places the country in the top producers in Europe. In the 2019-2020 campaign, the production was 4.9 million hectoliters.
At EU level, wine production was almost 156 million hectoliters in the 2019-2020 campaign, according to European Commission statistics.
The EU is one of the largest wine producers in the world. Between 2014 and 2018, the average annual production was 167 million hectoliters. The EU is home to 45% of the world’s wine-growing areas and accounts for 65% of production.
The new rules approved by the European authorities allow competitive producers to increase production within certain limits thanks to a simplified authorization system for vine planting.
Measures to promote the viticulture sector
- Promotion in non-EU countries
- Informing consumers about responsible consumption and EU quality schemes
- Restructuring and conversion of vineyards, including replanting for health reasons
- Green harvesting
- Mutual funds
- Harvest insurance
- Investments in profile companies
- Innovations for the development of new products, processes and technologies
- Distillation of by-products
The viticulture sector in Romania receives 48 million euros annually from the EU in support of the wine producers.
Area occupied by vines in Europe
The vine is grown on about 3.2 million hectares in Europe, and the largest areas planted nationally are in Spain, France and Italy. Romania had a share of 5.7% of the developed area at EU level, over 180,000 hectares. This area is cultivated by almost 1 million households nationwide, which indicates the presence of a very high number of small producers.
The European viticulture sector is dominated by older vines. Over 40% of the areas with vines were between 10 and 29 years old, and another 37.1% were older than 30 years. Only 6.5% of the cultivated areas had vines younger than 3 years, while 15.7% are in the 3-9 years category.
Where are the noble varieties produced in the local viticulture industry?
The most important areas in Romania with production of wine of noble varieties are in the Hills of Moldova, the Hills of Muntenia and Oltenia, the Hills of Banat and the Transylvanian Plateau.
In 2018, Romania’s wine imports reached the value of almost 63 million euros, while exports amounted to 30.4 million euros.
