Grapes are sun-loving plants and must be grown where they will be exposed to the sun all day or at least for the greater part of the day. But the base of the plant need not be in full sun although it is essential that the upper part of the plant catches as much strong sunlight as possible. (Grapes growing wild in forests often take root at the foot of trees and soon clamber above the trees).
The location selected for the vines should have good air drainage. In colder areas, protection from winter winds is necessary.
