500 year old grape vine recovers

A 500 year old grapevine that was cut back by vandalism has sent out some new shoots. When cut back it was not expected to live. This vine is a great grandparent of the popular variety Gruner Veltliner a white grape which is a particularly good food wine. It is being experimented with in NZ currently as a grape producer for wine production.

Check out a little more about this variety on Wikipedia at
