Vine row

Designation (also alley, row, line) for the vines planted in a row in the vineyard or vineyard. The orientation is of great importance when planting a vineyard. The rows of vines are planted crosswise or lengthwise depending on the compass direction of the exposure (sunlight). There is no generally valid rule for this, but it depends, among other things, on the climate (wind direction) and the slope (flat or steep) or inclination. In hot regions, care must be taken to ensure that there is also sufficient cooling shade; in cold regions, it must be guaranteed that the grapes receive sufficient sunlight. This is an important criterion for suitability as a growing area, the so-called winegrowing suit ability. See also under vine training and a list of relevant keywords under Vineyard.
