The buds of this plant cultivated since millennia are the source of Wild Grapevine Gemmotherapy Extract. Cultivated since ancient times by Egyptians, it is considered native to Armenia and to the southern coast of the Caspian Sea. Vine was imported from Asia Minor by Phoenicians, and then in Southern Europe by Romans.
The Wild Grapevine is a climbing sarmentary shrub. It’s a long-lived plant that is greatly affected by the temperature, as well as by the soil in which they grow. It prefers stony soils, of medium loose and mobile dough, or alluvial sandy and calcareous soils which are very sunny or with good solar exposure.
Its taproot can penetrate very deep into the soil in search of water. It has long and fragile branches and shoots (some of them transformed into tendrils thanks to which the vine clings tenaciously to any support) which have knots from which the large leaves depart. Fruits are berries grouped in bunches, the grapes, and contain many seeds from which a vegetable oil is extracted. Wild grape seeds require full sunlight to germinate. The seeds are spread by the birds and small mammals that feed on the fruit. Once buried in the soil, a grape seed can lay dormant, for many years, waiting for the required conditions to sprout. Grape can also sprout from the roots or the cut vine stumps. These characteristics allow the grape to become established after a heavy timber harvest.
In antiquity, the Grapevine was the attribute of Bacchus to the Romans and Dionysus to the Greeks. Very often quoted in the Bible, the Grapevine and wine represent the symbol of Christ, his blood and the Eucharist. Together with the olive, the vine is the symbol of the Mediterranean.
The therapeutic properties of the vine have also been recognized since ancient times; its leaves are astringent, tonic and diuretic; the ripe fruit is nutritive, laxative and softening; the grape pomace is stimulating and anti-rheumatic; the oil from the seeds is antidiarrheal.
