Grapes have had such an enormous impact on history and the economy that they’ve necessitated their own branch of scientific study. I’m referring to the science of Viticulture which involves the in-depth study and analysis of grape culture and production. However, we shouldn’t be surprised at this extensive research since grape cultivation has been around for over 8000 years.
What’s surprising, though, despite the 72-million-ton global production of grapes is that very few of these numbers come from homegrown grape trees, or more accurately, grapevines.
I’m here to tell you that growing and nurturing your own grape tree is entirely possible! With ample space in your garden, the right equipment and tools, and the steps and tips here, you can begin your adventure into viticulture!
