  • Wine Time Fridays Wine Word of the Week – Canopy

The canopy of a grapevine includes the parts of the vine visible aboveground – the trunk, cordon, stems, leaves, flowers, and fruit. The canopy plays a key role in light energy capture via photosynthesis, water use as regulated by transpiration, and microclimate of ripening grapes. Canopy management is an important aspect of viticulture due to its effect on grape yields, quality, vigor, and the prevention of grape diseases.
