bench graft

Definition

Wine

  • a form of graft used for vines in which the two parts have matching notches, rather like two jigsaw pieces, so that they can be pressed together, ensuring that they are in tight contact to help them grow together. In a graft, one part is the rootstock from a phylloxera-resistant vine and the other is a cutting from a plant that produces the type of grape required.
