Tannat grapes are a dark-skinned varietal of grape originating from the Madiran region of France. The grape is known for its deep color, high tannin levels and intense flavor. Its popularity as a grape for winemaking has grown in recent years, and it is now used to make red wines in many different countries. Tannat grapes are also gaining popularity as a table grape. Whether you are looking to make a bottle of Tannat wine or just enjoy a sweet, juicy snack, learning how to grow Tannat grapes is a great way to experience this wonderful varietal.
When planting Tannat grapes, it is important to choose a location that receives full sun and has well-drained soil. Plant the vines in the spring, spacing them at least 8 feet apart. Make sure to plant them deeply, at least 12 inches deep. Prune the vines back vigorously in the winter to promote a healthy and productive plant.
Tannat grapes need plenty of water, especially in the summer months. Make sure to water your vines once a week, either with a hose or with a drip irrigation system. If you live in a particularly dry area, you may need to water your vines more frequently.
Fertilize your Tannat grapes once a year in the springtime with a balanced fertilizer. This will help the vines produce healthy grapes and promote a strong root system. Keep an eye on your vines and if they are not growing to the desired size, you may need to apply additional fertilizer.
Once your Tannat grapes are mature, they will need to be harvested. Tannat grapes are usually ready to pick in the fall. Be sure to pick them at the right time, as over-ripe grapes will not have the same flavor and texture as properly ripened grapes.
Tannat grapes are a great varietal for both winemaking and as a table grape. With the right care and attention, you can enjoy a delicious crop of Tannat grapes every year. Just remember to choose a sunny location, water your vines regularly, fertilize them in the springtime and pick the grapes at the right time.
1. Choose a sunny spot in your yard that gets at least 8 hours of direct sunlight per day.
2. Prepare the soil by loosening it to a depth of at least 12 inches.
3. Plant the grapevines 6-10 feet apart, depending on the variety.
4. Water the plants regularly, making sure to keep the soil moist but not soggy.
5. Fertilize the plants with a balanced fertilizer once or twice a year.
6. Prune the vines regularly to ensure healthy growth and fruit production.
7. Harvest the grapes when they are ripe, usually in late summer or early fall.
