Petit Verdot grapes are an increasingly popular variety of red wine grape. The variety is known for its deep, dark color and intense flavor, making it an ideal choice for blending with other varietals. Petit Verdot is also a hardy grape, making it an ideal choice for cooler climates and more challenging growing conditions. If you are looking for a variety to plant in your vineyard, Petit Verdot may be the perfect choice.
The first step to growing Petit Verdot grapes is to select the right location. The variety does best in climates that are warm and sunny during the summer months, but cooler in the winter. It also requires well-drained soil and plenty of sunshine. Plant your vines in the spring, and make sure the soil is properly prepared before planting.
When selecting the vines, look for healthy plants that are disease-free. Petit Verdot is a vigorous variety, so pruning should be done regularly to keep it in check. Prune the vines in the winter and again in the summer, as well as after each harvest.
Once the vines are planted and established, you will need to provide them with water regularly. This can be done through irrigation or by hand. It is also important to fertilize the vines in the spring and summer to ensure optimal growth.
Harvesting your Petit Verdot grapes typically occurs between late summer and early fall. The grapes should be picked when they are ripe, which will be indicated by their deep color and intense flavor. After harvesting, the grapes should be crushed and processed immediately to ensure they retain their flavor and quality.
Petit Verdot is a hardy variety of grape, making it an ideal choice for cooler climates and more challenging growing conditions.
