Vitis vinifera 'Tempranillo'

Common name tempranillo grape
Family vitaceae
Life cycle shrub
Size vine

Black grape native to Spain, used for producing full-bodied red wines. We bought our plant as a wee cutting from a local grocery store, so it will be quite some time before we see it produce any fruit. Meanwhile, it can climb up our backyard fence to hide its monotonous appearance. That's assuming our plant thrives – from the little research I've done, I understand that grapes in Texas are best grown on specific rootstocks, and I don't believe our specimen is grafted onto a rootstock. In any case, it's an interesting experiment.

In our garden, this plant grows in the following area: houston back yard
