Traditional grafted grape plants

 

Traditional grafted grape plants with bare roots

This type of grape plants is the most used in the world to day. It was created by the Richter grape vine nurseries in Montpellier in the years 1900-1910.

The grafted grape plants are produced through the bench grafting in the spring of a bud over a cutting of rootstock. After several treatments and a passage in a callusing room allowing for the adaptation of the bud and rootstock, creating a callus between the two, these future grafted grape plants are planted in the field in nurseries.
These nurseries are very sensitive and need constant attention.
In the fall, after falling of leaves, the grafted grape plants are pulled out, sorted and placed in cold storage so that they can be planted in the following winter or spring.
