Love for Words — Viticulture
June 15, 2018
___ Viticulture is “wine agriculture.”
The word origin joins two Latin words
— vitis that means “vine” , referring to grapevine
— and cultura that means “cultivation, or agriculture.”
Yet Viticulture is specifically the cultivation of grapes, especially for use in making wine.
Viticulture is definitely a winegrower’s and winemaker’s occupation. They might have different opinion regarding whether they consider it a “science” or an “art.”
