vine spacing



  • the distance between vines, determined by the local conditions and method of growing them. In a wet area of France, a vine can survive on a small area of ground; in a dry, arid area of Spain, a vine needs a much larger area for its roots to try and find water. Old vineyards also tend to plant vines in rows close together where a man or horse can pass along the row. In Australia vines are planted with more space between the rows to allow machines to pass along the rows to pick the grapes.
