2.1. Data description

The vineyard data set includes data on the structure of vineyards in the European Union. It covers the holdings growing vines intended to produce grapes for other purposes than table grapes or growing plants for vegetative propagation of before mentioned vines and the area covered by these vines.  The data concerns the vine types, degree of specialisation of vine-grower holdings, main varieties of grapes and age of plants. Some indicators are collected at national level, others a NUTS2 level.  The data are extracted from the vineyard register. The Member States, which have more than 500 ha of vines for other purpose than table grape production need to collect the data.

2.2. Classification system

The classification system used in the vineyard data has several dimensions:  type of vineyards, degree of specialisation of the holding, main varieties (> 500 ha at national level), age of plants and size classes of holdings. More information can be found in the Handbook.

2.3. Coverage - sector

Growing of grapes for other purposes than table grapes (mainly for wine, juice, raisins) (part of NACE rev.  2 classification of A01.21: growing of grapes) and plant propagation for vines (part of NACE rev.  2 classification of A01.30: plant propagation).

2.4. Statistical concepts and definitions

Statistical characteristics of observations
Is there a national legislation covering structural vineyrd statistics? YES
Name of the legislation

Verordnung des Bundesministers für Land- und Forstwirtschaft, Umwelt und Wasserwirtschaft betreffend die Statistik über die Weingartenflächen im Jahr 2015 (Weingartengrunderhebungsverordnung 2015)

 

If yes, provide a link

Additional comments

3.5. Data compilation

Data are compiled using the unique holding identifier (e.g. data from vine nurseries).

3.6. Adjustment

Not applicable. There were no procedures employed to modify statistical data to enable it to conform to national or international standards or to address data quality differences when compiling specific data sets. The only modifications were corrections in the course of the plausibility checks.


4. Quality management Top
4.1. Quality assurance

Is there a quality management process in place for vineyard statistics? YES
If yes, what are the components?

The data derived from the provincial vineyard cadasters of Burgenland, Lower Austria, Styria and Vienna are based on the respective wine laws, which have to be implemented by the cadaster administering authorities. The responsible staff continually ensures data quality.  Every issue reported is checked for completeness and plausibility. Every over-use of areas is reported by the application and corrected immediately. 

As of November 30 the master data of all holdings are collected annually. The provincial vineyard cadasters of Lower Austria and Styria are maintained on a daily basis in the Central Vine Database (System Wein-ONLINE) of the Federal Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry, Environment and Water Management (BMLFUW). The data of the federal provinces Burgenland and Vienna are exported from the cadasters as of July 31 and integrated in the Central Vine Database of the Federal Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry, Environment and Water Management (BMLFUW). Daily updated data are available at the provincial vineyard cadasters.

Was the authority responsible for the vineyard register involved in the quality assurance of the vineyard data? YES
If yes, which data quality improvement actions were proposed to be done to the vineyard register?  
Improvement of coverage of the register (elimination of over-coverage)
Improvement of the coverage of the register (elimination of under-coverage)
Elimination of multiple listings
More frequent updates
Inclusion of new characteristics in the register
Improving the identification of the holding
Other improvement actions
   
Is there a Quality Report available? YES
If yes, please provide a link

A quality report is planed for 2017.

There is no quality report dealing with the datasources (provincial vineyard cadasters and the Central Vine Database (System Wein-ONLINE)).

   
Has a peer-review been carried out for vineyard statistics? YES
If yes, which were the main conclusions?

It is a stated goal to establish a central and consolidated vine database including all federal provinces.

What quality improvement measures are planned for the next 5 years?  
Improvement of the vineyard register
Improvement of data validation
Further automation
Quality Report
Peer review
Other

Additional comments

The dataset supplied to Eurostat is complete. The dataset provided by the Central Vine Database (System Wein-ONLINE) originally is not complete and had to be supplemented by vine nurseries data and data from federal provinces having no vineyard cadaster due to their minor role in viticulture. Vinegrowing holdings of those federal provinces were directly surveyed.
