Mexican grafting techniques in a Tarn vineyard

France 3/Scoop, May 31

The technique of grafting vines is practiced by specialists in Mexico, and one winemaker from Senouillac in the Tarn has called on such professionals.

The grafting profession is not very common in France, but the technique is still widely practiced in South America.

The specialists from a Guadalajara vineyard have crossed the Atlantic, and will spend three months in the vineyard grafting buds of Colombard grape on to Cabernet Sauvignon.

The vine growers can use this grafting technique to adapt their vineyard to the market.  It allows a change of the cepage in a year, with just a single year’s loss of harvest.
