Grape vines are actually part of the "trellis fruit" and traditionally play a major role in the greening of facades. Due to the abundance of information, grape vines are treated separately at FassadeGrün: Here you will find extensive information on "wine at home and in the garden"! You can select vine systems, compare table grapes, learn how to prune and how to recognize diseases. FassadenGrün also sells several varieties.

(also called "grape wine", Latin: Vitis vinifera)
A climber with tendrils, vigorous growth, yearly new shoots 1-4m, sometimes trailing like a bridal train. Leaf shapes often filigree. Foliage from April/May to October.
Flower and Fruit
Flower insignificant, panicled. Fruit green, yellow, red or blue to black, grapes and berries of varying sizes.
Formative pruning of the vine takes several years ("Training"). Pruning in winter an absolute necessity, additional summer pruning may be required.
Rods, grids, wires or wire ropes, especially for tying the vine trunks. See below for suitable wire rope systems. Usually medium trellis systems, for larger areas, for old varieties, and grapevines susceptible to fungus, heavy kits (greater distance from wall). In exceptional cases also light kits.
For espaliers along walls it is important that the stem framework of the vine is tied to the outside of the trellis. Yearly fruiting canes, which are later pruned off, get tucked behind the trellis.
