A vineyard (/ˈvɪn.jərd/; also UK: /ˈvɪn.jɑːrd/) is a plantation of grape-bearing vines, grown mainly for winemaking, but also raisins, table grapes and non-alcoholic grape juice. The science, practice and study of vineyard production is known as viticulture. Vineyards are often characterised by their terroir, a French term loosely translating as "a sense of place" that refers to the specific geographical and geological characteristics of grapevine plantations, which may be imparted to the wine itself.

History

Satyrs in vineyard. Attic red-figure volute-krater, ca. 490 BC, State Collections of Antiques in Munich.
The earliest evidence of wine production dates from between 6000 and 5000 BC. Wine making technology improved considerably with the ancient Greeks but it wasn't until the end of the Roman Empire that cultivation techniques as we know them were common throughout Europe.

In medieval Europe the Church was a staunch supporter of wine, which was necessary for the celebration of the Mass. During the lengthy instability of the Middle Ages, the monasteries maintained and developed viticultural practices, having the resources, security, stability and interest in improving the quality of their vines. They owned and tended the best vineyards in Europe and vinum theologium was considered superior to all others.

European vineyards were planted with a wide variety of the Vitis vinifera grape. However, in the late 19th century, the entire species was nearly destroyed by the plant louse phylloxera accidentally introduced to Europe from North America. Native American grapevines include varieties such as Vitis labrusca, which is resistant to the bug. Vitis vinifera varieties were saved by being grafted onto the rootstock of Native American varieties, although there is still no remedy for phylloxera, which remains a danger to any vineyard not planted with grafted rootstock.

A winery is a building or property that produces wine, or a business involved in the production of wine, such as a wine company. Some wine companies own many wineries. Besides wine making equipment, larger wineries may also feature warehouses, bottling lines, laboratories, and large expanses of tanks known as tank farms. Wineries may have existed as long as 8,000 years ago.

Ancient history
The earliest known evidence of winemaking at a relatively large scale, if not evidence of actual wineries, has been found in the Middle East. In 2011 a team of archaeologists discovered a 6000 year old wine press in a cave in the Areni region of Armenia, and identified the site as a small winery.[3] Previously, in the northern Zagros Mountains in Iran, jars over 7000 years old were discovered to contain tartaric acid crystals (a chemical marker of wine), providing evidence of winemaking in that region. Archaeological excavations in the southern Georgian region of Kvemo Kartli uncovered evidence of wine-making equipment (containers called qvevri) dating back 8000 years. In 2017 the remnants of an 8000-year-old facility for large-scale production was found 20 miles south of Tbilisi, Georgia.

Your Guide to Finding the Best Vineyard / Winery

Introduction

Vineyards and wineries have been an important part of human civilization for centuries, and they continue to hold a special place in the hearts of many wine enthusiasts. This guide aims to help you find the best vineyard or winery near you.

History and Evolution

The history of vineyards and wineries dates back thousands of years, with evidence of wine production found in ancient civilizations such as Egypt, Greece, and Rome. Over time, the art of winemaking has evolved and expanded to different regions of the world, resulting in a diverse range of wine styles and flavors.

Types of Vineyards and Wineries

Boutique Wineries

Boutique wineries are small-scale wineries that typically produce less than 10,000 cases of wine per year. They often have a focus on producing high-quality, handcrafted wines using traditional winemaking techniques.

Commercial Wineries

Commercial wineries produce wine on a larger scale and distribute their products to a wider market. They may use modern technology and production methods to produce consistent and affordable wines.

Estate Wineries

Estate wineries are vineyards that grow their own grapes and produce wine on the same property. They often have a focus on producing terroir-driven wines that reflect the unique characteristics of the vineyard.

Wine Varieties and Tasting

Vineyards and wineries produce a wide variety of wine styles, including red, white, rosé, and sparkling wines. Wine tasting is a popular activity at vineyards and wineries, where visitors can sample different wines and learn about the production and aging process.

Tours and Activities

Many vineyards and wineries offer tours and activities for visitors, such as vineyard tours, barrel tastings, and food and wine pairings. Some may also offer accommodations, such as bed and breakfasts or vacation rentals.
