The history and origin of Riesling is clouded in mystery. There are no facts or evidences that Riesling existed many years ago. But we know that the history of German wine started its existence thousands years ago under the Roman Empire. Romans replanted the vineyards in Germany; so we can assume that Riesling already existed many years ago. The first documentary evidence regarding Riesling appears in 1435. Riesling's home is the regions that trace the middle Rhine and the lower Mosel, which is two of Europe's great wine rivers. On the other side of the Rhine lies Alsace, once it was a German region and now it’s a part of France. In early history and up to the middle ages, monks were responsible for the vineyards in the Germany. Monasteries carried forward the traditions of winemaking; they made a winemaking process an art. And under their ownership quality of the wine had changed; the Riesling’s triumph had begun by the 17th century, with efforts to improve the quality of the wine. At that time many red vines were replaced by the Riesling vines. After Napoleon’s invasion in 18th century, private landowners took the control over the vineyards. Monasteries lost their power over the vineyards that they took care throughout the history. They were making wine now not only for the domestic consumption but for export as well. By then, German Rieslings were highly popular around the world, even valued by many European royal dynasties. They were bought and sold at…

propagated the grape cultivation techniques at the beginning of the 1st century. Alsace began to accelerate on its wine production as it was known as wine that ‘makes people festive and empowered’ during the Merovingian dynasty and the Carolingian dynasty. Vine cultivation of Alsace was at its crest in the 16th centaury but unfortunately the period of prosperity ended with the start of the World War I. However, after viticulturists adopted a new strict policy of quality control, Alsace wine celebrated its…
Without The Lord, we are nothing.
In John 15:5-8, The Lord says, “I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. If anyone does not remain in me, he is like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up, thrown into the fire and burned. If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be given you. This is to my Father’s glory, that you bear much fruit…
dated 4500 BC and Armenia 4100 BC respectively. The world's oldest known winery (dated to 3000 BC) was discovered in Areni-1 cave in a mountainous area of Armenia.

Evidence of the earliest wine production in Balkans has been uncovered at archaeological sites in northern Greece (Macedonia), dated to 4500…
and Ale and I assumed she was coming to start trouble, in which I was correct.
“Hey” she said
“What's up” I replied
“Why don't you like Elizabeth?” she said bluntly
“Who said I didn't like her?”
“I heard it through the great vine”
“What the fuck is the great vine?” I replied. I could feel myself getting mad simply because she was being a smart-ass.
Before she could respond Elizabeth and Alejandra had walked over to us.
“So I heard you were talking shit about me” Elizabeth said
taken from John 15 which mentions a vine. You may or many not know this but the vine was apparently a powerful symbol, and one with which Jesus’ s disciples could immediately identify with. The vine so symbolic it was used on coins and jars.
I don’t know if you have noticed but John has used quite a few metaphors to describe Jesus, for example he is the bread from heaven and the living water. But the passage we have heard this morning Jesus is described as the vine.

Question 4: Why are grapevines trellised? Also, describe three trellis types
and explain their suitability to either a region or variety.
In their simplest form, vineyard trellis systems provide made-man
support for a grapevine and its fruit. But it is their design that is crucial in
managing the way in which a grapevine’s leaves and fruit are exposed to
sunlight. Trellising directly affects the ripeness, colour and flavour

Kudzu is a constant vine of the legume family (Fabaceae). Each leaf has three dark
green leaflets, 2.75 to 9.84 inches (7 to 25 cm) long, with or without uneven, shallow sections,
otherwise entire, hairy beneath. Many quickly growing, hairy vines trail, stretch and loosely
twine from a large, central root crown. In late July to September plants in full sun sometimes
produce purple flowers up to 0.79 inches (2 cm)] in…
