The dirunal temperature range is the difference between the daily maximum temperature and nightly minimum temperature in one day of a vineyard. It is thought to be of importance in viticulture.

In cool climates, it helps to increase colour, flavour and aroma development in grapes. In warm to hot climates, diurnal temperature variation helps to cool the grapes at night maintaining acidity in the grapes.
