A thermophilic plant. Low temperatures in winter and during the growing season can be a threat to the grape vines. The grapevine is a photophilous plant. All leaves and the raceme should have a good access to light. The plant is relatively resistant to drought. The largest amount of water is required at the beginning of the growing season and during the period of intensive growing. The grapevine has modest soil requirements. It should not be planted on heavy soils and wetlands. Soil pH should be close to neutral (pH 6,0-7,0).
