Winery vs. Vineyard

By Jaxson

Main Difference

The main difference between Winery and Vineyard is that the Winery is a place that makes wine and Vineyard is a plantation of grape-bearing vines

  • Winery

    A winery is a building or property that produces wine, or a business involved in the production of wine, such as a wine company. Some wine companies own many wineries. Besides wine making equipment, larger wineries may also feature warehouses, bottling lines, laboratories, and large expanses of tanks known as tank farms. Wineries may have existed as long as 8,000 years ago.

  • Vineyard

    A vineyard ( VIN-yərd, also UK: VIN-yard) is a plantation of grape-bearing vines, grown mainly for winemaking, but also raisins, table grapes and non-alcoholic grape juice. The science, practice and study of vineyard production is known as viticulture.

    A vineyard is often characterised by its terroir, a French term loosely translating as “a sense of place” that refers to the specific geographical and geological characteristics of grapevine plantations, which may be imparted in the wine.

  • Winery (noun)

    A place where wine is made, or a company that makes wine.

  • Vineyard (noun)

    A grape plantation.

    “The vineyard of Château Margaux stands as the producer of one of the world’s greatest and most sought-after red wines.”
