Often folks talk of vineyards in acreage. Due to the variance in planting density (vine spacing and row spacing) trellising systems (e.g. vertical shoot positioning, head pruned/trained), soils, and farming techniques, it’s hard to say exactly how much wine an acre of wine grapes will produce.
How Many Bottles Grow Here?
Vineyards vary in the spacing of the rows and also between the individual vines. Depending upon age and variety, some are more productive per vine than others, some produce larger clusters of fruit and some yield more juice per pound of fruit. Wine makers and their facilities also vary in the amount of juice they are willing or able to squeeze from the grapes.
