Ecology and Phytosociology

The European grapevine is a trailing, climbing shrub with oppositeifolios tendrils. Harvested in Greece as early as 1700 B.C., the grapevine was used to make wine and therapeutic remedies, which were recognized for centuries, but have now unfortunately lost all official status in this area. Its slender branchlets feature knots on which grow the leaves and their axillary buds, then the tendrils and finally the flower clusters, both of which grow opposite to the leaves. The stems can reach considerable heights. The gravevine is formed from branchlets that grow end to end from a terminal bud. The leaves then grow opposite to the bud, making it a lateral bud, which then creates the subsequent branchlet. The vine produces grapes, which are a highly useful fruit for humans, be it as juice or wine. It is one of nature’s greatest gifts.

The vine is part of the vast vista areas with a northern limit approximately reaching the tertiary outcrops. It grows on rocky, yet soft soil and on ancient sandy, calcareous alluvial land with good exposure to the sun. Lack of care quickly leads to the growth of various suckers such as Cornus Sanguinea, Rubus Fructicosus, Rosa Canina, evolving towards the ruderal elm stand. The grapevine appears to have originated from Asia Minor.
