Different types of species
There are different species of grapevines. The quality of wines varies depending on these species. These include Merlot, Syrah, Cabernet, Sauvignon Blank, etc.
The plants cannot be left alone to grow. The winegrower uses various practices to make wines. They need to control the plant by determining in which way the shoots will grow, positioning the vines in the proper way, etc. The winegrowers place posts and wires to support the vine shoots. Pruning and canopy management are also part of viticultural practices. The way wines are harvested also affects the quality of wines.
