Number of vines per acre

How many vines per acre are there?

It depends on soil types and vine rootstocks

There is not an exact number when it comes to the number of vines per acre.  The main idea is that this number depends on different soil types.  Moreover, vine rootstocks require different vine spacing.  Imagine that root density can increase up to 8,000 vines per acre.  Statistics show that grapevines planted with a row spacing as low as 5 ¼ feet and a very close plant spacing produce fewer grapes than plants grown with approximately 6 feet in between rows and 3 feet between plants.  The type of soil is also extremely important.
