Vitis vinifera 'Tempranillo'
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 has been given license to climb up our backyard fence to hide its monotonous appearance. By season's end, it had accomplished that goal, twining its way to the top of the fence and beyond, and also threatening to overrun neighboring shrubs. So for now it appears our plant is thriving – which was uncertain, because 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 our garden, this plant grows in the following area: back fence border
