Comments: This is the grape that is used for commercial fruit and wine production, but it also can be used as a fast growing vine on landscape structures provided that they are made of heavy duty materials to handle the aggressive and heavy growth of the vines. Select a site in full sunlight with a well drained soil. Pruning is required every winter to help control diseases and maximize fruit production.
