I just had another thought. I wonder if grapes do better with fruit when the cordon is horizontal vs vertical? Do they function like tree limbs in the sense that the bear fruit when weighted down(festooned)? If so it would make sense why most pleaces grown them on an arbor and trellis.
Those grapes are unsuitable for fruit (or wine), as the leaves will not get enough sun to produce large clusters of sweet fruit.

fritz- if your going to dig up a wild plant, dig up a small one that you know will live. trying to dig up a 40ft grape vine will kill it surely. and a waste of life.
the best way would be to find one that does fruit well and tastes good. then you can take cuttings and clone that like Emerson suggested.
That which doesn't kill us makes us stronger. I think a piece of pie wouldn't kill me. Tiny ad:
