You know,

For all their foibles in standard viticulture, I have found Pinot Noir to be remarkably vigorous, disease resistant and generally happy in a container. They respond well to root trimming yet the natural slower growth of this variety helps maintain a more restrained shape as we work with it for Bonsai. In short I think Pinot Noir make excellent subject for Bonsai and they are a lot of fun to have on your table for a wine tasting!

Jay,

I think you right on with your comments about this grape. Mine has very small leaves for a grape and it has not missed a beat when I put into a bonsai pot.

Hey Mike,

Here's mine late last summer, still in her training pot (she was repotted into a nicer container this spring). Along with a bottle and glass of Pinot Noir. That was a fun night.

Best

Jay,

Nice tree and wine! Looks like your leaves are bigger then my tree. I wonder if its because I am at a higher elevation.? I have another grape vine that has really small leaves and the pinot noir are not much bigger then it. This other grape has tiny grapes to boot and turns a wonderful shade of red in  the summer and later a fall color of purple.  Red-Purple Grape

Please post a photo of your tree in its new pot when you get a chance.

Thanks,

Mike

If either of you get grapes on these bonsai, please post photos.

Mike, can you show a close-up of your tree? I'd like to get a better look at the bark and trunk structure.

Hi Chris,

Here you go, this photo was taken while the camera was in pan mode by accident. It may be a little distorted, but it does show the trunk leaves pretty good.
