Nota

[...]
In most parts of the world the vineyard is a well-defined entity, generally well demarcated by the borders of the straight rows. Vignoble is a common French term for a vineyard at all quality levels.
[...]
Vineyards are typically monocultures with vines the only plants growing. Less frequently, however, vineyards are grown intermingled with other crops, the so-called coltura promiscua that was once the norm in much of central Italy.
[...]
Any one vineyard may be made up of smaller units, parcels or fields, which may contain different vine varieties, clones, rootstocks, or vines of different ages. Sometimes fields are separated, as for example by headlands, hedges, or drainage ditches, and otherwise may be contiguous one with another. 2
