History of our vineyard - Dermancy
In autumn, the vines enter a state of dormancy, which is characterized by being a state in which there are no leaves or any growth related activities.
During this period, the vine adapts to cold weather conditions, reducing the volume of water in its tissues and simultaneously increasing the concentration of solutes in the cells.
This period is essential for the vine's survival, so that it can continue healthy for the next phase of its cycle.
The vine's only source of energy during this dormant phase is carbohydrates, mostly from the starch in the roots. Its survival is totally dependent on these accumulated reserves.
