TECHNICAL ARTICLE: Protected Viticulture – Optimizing Climate for Production of Quality Wines

Climate is the most influential characteristic of vineyards that affects the production and quality of grapes and wine. Regional variations in climate delineate where grapes can be grown and where superior fruit quality can be achieved. Many regions that lack ideal climatic conditions for wine grapes benefit from adoption of vineyard protection techniques.

These techniques can prevent or lessen damage from weather events that bring extreme cold, heat, wind or UV exposure; or they can help to optimize vine microclimates to enhance vegetative growth and production of economic yields of mature high-quality fruit for winemaking.

This article presents experimental results obtained and practical recommendations concerning Wind Machines, Over-Winter Protection of Young Grapevines and Plastic Film Enclosures for Vine Canopies

Article based on the paper presented at the “International Cool Climate Wine Symposium”, ICCWS, Brighton, England, 26-28 may 2016
