13 Beautiful Examples of Wine Grape Growing

One of the main mistakes in wine grape growing is poor planning of arbor or other support. See this selection of of hand picked marvellous examples of grape arbors and get inspired.
If you plant grapes in the garden today, even your grand grand grand grand grand children can still enjoy it and remember you as the founder of family little vineyard.
The oldest grape with an age of over 400 years is still growing grapes. It is registered in the Guinness Book of Records as the oldest vine in the world and symbolises wine culture of Maribor, Štajerska and Slovenia.

Grape arbors are beautiful - they don't have to look sad.

This is a really interesting post...the photos you've included are such beautiful examples of grapevine arbors. If I had the proper space (and weather) I'd love to have one!

Good memories...we had grapes on an arbor at my parents home back in the 1960's. As a child I love to pick and eat what ever I could get my hands on.
Aah... to be young.
Thanks for the happy memories.

Hi, Ewa, I have lived in wine country for so long now it's my constant backdrop and I never tire of it or become immune to its beauty. Thank you for exploring here.

Such a beautiful array of grape arbours here Ewa! We have a lot of Italian migrants living here in South Australia. And most of their homes has a huge grapevine growing over the back verandah - providing table grapes & also grapes for making home-made wine.
