Abstract: Wine production and consumption in Poland is located in a niche area, but along with social and economic changes. Polish wine market became one of the most dynamically growing in Europe, similar to local wine production. Developing wine manufacturing branch in the suitable regions, might be a chance for diversification of activities of the farms, strengthening agritourist offer and developing the trails of thematic tourism in Poland and contribute to a cultural change in a model of alcohol consumption in Poland. The aim of the paper was to identify the main problems hindering a development of this new branch of agricultural production activity, in a context of human depending phenomena. The research method based on fieldwork, observation in vineyards and winery and focus group interviews and a questionnaire conducted with owners of wineries and wine producers from Malopolska region. Those let us identify the areas of subjectively perceived problems of winemakers and formulate the weaknesses that may have a negative impact for development of this fledgling sector. The main problems reported by manufacturers in a questionnaire were related to legal and institutional issues of winemakers in Poland, also there was pointed a question of an access to relevant plant protection products in a context of possibility of carrying organic farming and a problem of certification. The focus group interview, revealed some internal problems of Polish winemaking, connected with social and human capital and lack of sufficiently coherent vision of development of the Polish wine manufacturing sector
